ESPECIAL SINAIS EN CURTO: MARTA VALVERDE
All online contents will be freely available online on the festival’s website (www.s8cinema.com) between May 28 and June 6 2021 (both dates inclusive).
Year after year, our section Sinais en curto offers a compilation of recent Galician creations that match the spirit of our festival. In this 12th edition, the section will be split in two: we’ll be holding our usual on-site screening followed by a Q&A session, but this time it will be complemented by a series of special online programs with solo episodes dedicated to each featured Galician author. These programs, designed to make you discover in detail both the artists’ work and the creative impulses behind it, will include an extra selection of films by the guest authors.
The ability to flow freely among different disciplines defines Marta Valverde’s work. Her artistic production includes one-format pieces, such as the ones we’ll be featuring in this section (Blanco y fucsia and El tiempo suspendido), but also pieces involving multiple screens, live cinema, photography, installations, and visual productions for theatre and stage performances. As she herself states, her interests range from intimacy to memory and autobiographical explorations –all of these are present in her films, which usually expand beyond the screen, as is the case with Blanco y fucsia. Valverde’s creations are in tune with her time and connect with the languages of her generation in the only possible way: through a hybrid work with a deep aesthetic awareness where the personal becomes universal.
