Il momento della verità The moment of truth ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container
Crònica d'una mirada ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in Catalan and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This award-winning, six-part documentary series uncovers the little-known history of a clandestine group of anti-Franco filmmakers operating under total secrecy in '60s and '70s Spain. Forced to choose between exile and intellectual annihilation, these filmmakers instead expressed themselves, putting their art into the service of a political movement that altered the course of Spanish history. Their saga, nearly lost to oblivion along with their films, provides crucial witness to the end of the Franco era while simultaneously revealing a bold and formally innovative period in Spanish Cinema."--Distributor's website
Die Stille vor Bach ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"El silencio antes de Bach is an approximation of music and its related disciplines and professions through the work of Juan [i.e. Johann] Sebastian Bach. The film is a reflection on the deep dramaturgical relations between image and music, where music is not merely a subsidiary substratum of image, but a subject of parity"--Pere Portabella website

Miró : the experience of seeing : late works, 1963-1981 ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This groundbreaking publication offers a reassessment of renowned modernist Joan Miró's late-career works, created between 1963 and 1981. This body of work, almost entirely unknown in the United States, showcases Miró's exceptional ingenuity as both a painter and sculptor. Miró: The Experience of Seeing includes color illustrations of nearly 50 paintings, drawings, and sculptures that show the breadth and contrast of this body of work-from bold, colorful canvases with expressive gestures to the most minimal calligraphic markings on white fields. His sculptures made of found objects are a revelation. Comparisons between paintings and sculptures highlight startling connections between shapes and symbols that Miró; used in each medium. These mature works represent the culmination of the artist's development of an innovative and personal visual language. Engaging texts, including a contribution by noted Spanish filmmaker Pere Portabella, explain Miró's role as a political figure and his quest to speak about the most intangible subjects through the materiality of objects and the painted gesture. This important new examination of Miró's later work allows for a richer, deeper understanding of this significant modern artist's distinguished career"--
