Description

Masterclass by Salvador Sunyer - Director and Producer at Nanouk Films Barcelona


Barcelona is today one of Europe's most important centres for the study and production of Creative Documentary or “Documental de Creacion”. Directly influenced by the avant gardist filmmakers from the Escola de Barcelona (School of Barcelona), a new generation claims its place and their works sweep international festival competitions. Backed by renowned teachers like Joaquim Jordá or José Luis Guerín schools like University Pompeu Fabra (UPf) or Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (UaB) are today important incubators of documentary film talent.

Nanouk Films have played a central role on that new generation, producing some of the most remarkable works coming out of those schools, going straight to festials like Visions du Reel, IFFR or Locarno Film Festival. Salvador Sunyer will present the role of Nanouk Films in this new wave of creative documentariey films in Spain, delivering a masterclass organised by Cinemaattic with Scottish Documentary Institute at Edinburgh College of Art.
