Anthology Film Archives


May 13 – May 14

In the last fifteen years, Spanish cities have seen the flourishing of heterogeneous communities devoted to maintaining analog film culture. Through material exchange, mutual influence, informal screenings, and friendship, three generations of filmmakers intermingle in Madrid, Barcelona, and San Sebastian in an extraordinary moment for Spanish poetic cinema. These programs survey the output of 23 filmmakers who continue to work in 16mm and Super-8, cultivating a cinema in tension with the quotidian in a drive to capture or conjure experience.

The series will also encompass an expanded cinema program which will take place at the Museum of the Moving Image; for more details visit:

This series is presented with generous support from Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola (EQZE), the Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies, the NYU Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program, the Orphan Film Symposium, and the Cultural Department of the Consulate General of Spain. A reception is provided courtesy of Bodegas Williams & Humbert.

The screenings will be presented in person by guest-curators Francisco Algarín Navarro and Carlos Saldaña, from Revista Lumière.
