Abstract:

Farewell, Babylon! is a documentary alternating between clips from different movies and footage of Arrabal's trip to New York City in the early nineties. Arrabal is able to capture some truly odd imagery in his travels around the city which juxtaposes the filmed clips and more conventional travelogue footage. Arrabal based this on his novel of the same name and managed to get a few unlikely guest stars to appear, including Spike Lee.

Borges, a life in poetry is a documentary on one of Arrabal's greatest influences, the writer Jorge Luis Borges who inspired Arrabal throughout his career, and features the last interview with Borges before his death. Interview sequences are interspersed with clips from Arrabal's films.

Arrabal, panik cineast features interview clips with Arrabal alongside some of his contemporaries, including former Panik Movement aficionado, Alejandro Jodorowsky, as well as a few other filmmakers and artists who claim him as an influence. Arrabal is always an amusing subject and this documentary captures him in fine form as he happily talks about his films and his surreal artistic creations.
