Sentimental education describes in the first person the transition from the youth of Jorge, the film’s director, to adulthood (increasingly delayed). A traumatic transit, where the innocence of the first days is abandoned based on breaks and work and artistic disappointments; where the weight and double nature of the family nucleus is understood, as a repressive entity and refuge. At the end of the film there will be a discussion between the director and the audience. The feature film belongs to the cycle dedicated to Docma, the Madrid Documentary Film Association created with the aim of spreading, promoting and protecting non-fiction audiovisuals in Spain.
When: Thursday, January 21. Where: Cineteca. Price: From € 3
Dance floor. Work of the artist Guillermo Santomà
Guillermo Santomà has transformed the Intermediae warehouse of Matadero Madrid into an unusual dance floor, within the cycle of activities of the Ciudad Bailar- Exaggerate program, to create a space where to continue dancing in times of pandemic. the sand cover is suspended clinging to the concrete columns, geometrically molded like a gabled roof. Only in its rear part is a slit large enough to be able to enter the environment. Inside, a large and powerful ball of light gives us a little warmth, like a new sun. This creates a game with light, dimensions, material and even color
When: Until June 30. Where: Slaughterhouse. Price: Free.
Taller. What are you up too?
In this workshop, attendees will discover that frames, monochromatic patterns of repeating shapes, are neither boring nor monotonous. With only one color and combining lines and shapes, we will experiment with the multiple expressive possibilities of lines: they can be lengthened, undulated, separated, joined or converted into points, in such a way that we will create contrasts and sensations of volume. The workshop is aimed at boys and girls from six years old.
When: Until May 3. Where: Caixaforum. Price: Free
