Cómo reparar una grieta is the title of Marta Valverde’s proposal for MICE’s 18th edition –a personal exploration of the notion of rururbanity. The exhibition will open with a performance by the artist at 7:00 pm today in the South Wing of the Museum of Galician People and will be accessible to the public until March 31.
At 5:00 pm, the auditorium of the Museum will host the European premiere of Porte de Clichy by Sébastien Marziniak –one of the films competing at the International Official Selection. It offers a portrait of a neighborhood on the outskirts of Paris that is experiencing an unprecedented urban transformation, including the construction of the new Court of Justice –a 160 m tower designed by Renzo Piano.
At 8:30 pm, Numax will host the screening of the third session of Trazas, a parallel section of the festival developed in collaboration with Cineclube de Compostela. This session will bring to us three short films: Al Sandawich, a piece by Egyptian director Ateyyat El-Abnoudy focusing on a village in the south of El Cairo that seems to have frozen in time; The Conwy Crossing (Stephen Hewitt and David Shaw), which breaks down the construction of the Conwy Tunnel, a landmark in civil engineering: the first immersed tube tunnel in the UK, and Guías turísticas satánicas: Polígono de Coia, by the Galician collective Vicisitud y Sordiez –a short film that takes us on a journey through the Coia neighborhood in Vigo, which hosts many examples of Francoist urban constructions in the late 60s.
Cow, Andrea Arnold’s tribute to cows and their role in our community, which will be on show as part of MICE’S section Impropias, will close this third day of the festival. The screening will take place at Numax at 10:00 pm.
