Length 107min.

Country Spain


A Place in the Cinema is about cinematographic resistance, structured through three filmmakers. The Greek master Theo Angelopoulos embarks on a trip from Athens to Ostia, the Roman beach where Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered. Far from there, in a railway station in Spain, the Spanish filmmaker Víctor Erice reveals himself through an interview whose discursive epicentre is the cinematographic resistance. In Italy, we meet Tonino Guerra, Ninetto Davoli and Nico Naldini. They will complete, representing Pasolini’s missing voice, the historical and cinematographic triangle conformed by the three filmmakers the authors want to pay homage to. All of them take part in a revealing and reflexive trip called “A place in the cinema”.
