deprisa deprisa, carlos saura

We will end the retrospective that we dedicated to the Spanish quinqui cinema with two films by Carlos Saura and Video-Nou collective.

Video-Nou collective from Barcelona introduce us to the youngters of Canyelles, and Carlos Saura to Pablo, Meca, Sebas and Ángela, from Madrid.

  • But beyond the movies, what was really happening in neighbourhoods? Who were all those youngsters?? What did they dream about?

    The documentary film collective, Video-Nou, of Barcelona, shows the lives of young people in the Canyelles district of Barcelona: school, work, unemployment, leisure, drugs, crime, the Catalan language, music. Because, lest we forget, long before trap, rap, rhymes, perreos, cumbias and graffiti, there was flamenco.

    Los Jóvenes del Barrio

    Albert Estival and Mª Lluïsa Roca, Spain, 1982, 39', OVES
  • Four friends from the outskirts of Madrid: Pablo, Mecca, Sebas and Angela. The suburbs were places where heroin-users listened to Los Chunguitos and dreamed of robberies. And the future? The future was too far away. What twenty years before was still a naive portrait of forgotten youth in big cities (Los golfos - The Hooligans, 1959, Carlos Saura), in the 1980’s was already a nihilistic radiography of a generation lost and torn to pieces. The film, produced by Elías Querejeta, was once again an audience success and won the Golden Bear in Berlin in 1981.
