The Fundació Joan Miró is once again participating in the programme 'For the Love of Arts' taking place at the Filmoteca de Catalunya. This programme establishes a dialogue between film and other art disciplines and boasts support from other cultural institutions in the city.
The Scottish poet and film director Margaret Tait harmonised the life of things, people and landscapes in films of an intimate nature that she herself described as 'film poems'. Like paper, the cinema screen was her medium for poetic conception: 'The kind of cinema I care about is at the level of poetry - in fact - it has been in a way my life's work making film poems,' she said.
Films being screened:
- A Portrait of Ga (4 min, 1952).
- Happy Bees (15 min, 1954).
- The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo (6 min, 1955).
- Calypso (4 min, 1955).
- Colour Poems (12 min, 1974).
- Aerial (4 min, 1974).
- Garden Pieces (11 min, 1998).
The session will be presented by Martina Millà, head of exhibitions at the Fundació Joan Miró and curator of the exhibition Paul Klee and the Secrets of Nature.
