MORE INFORMATIONA musical picture of the worst reality Isaki Lacuesta achieved its second Golden Shell with ‘Between two waters’
Isaki Lacuesta is like a child with new shoes. And not by the premiere in Spain next Friday, Between two waters, which became the filmmaker's youngest, at age 43, in get two Shells of Gold from the San Sebastian film festival (just what have achieved other five). But because the interview takes place within hours of the filmmaker to fly to Paris to finish off the preparations for something that qualifies as "a gift". The Centre Pompidou today inaugurates a retrospective of his work (open until January 6th) with the screening of all his films, the publication of a book about his work in another film that has done such as self-portrait and an installation -images échos - created expressly for the museum. And all this coincides with the exhibition director Naomi Kawase / Isaki Lacuesta.

"Between two waters, I have the feeling that I have just a stage," says Lacuesta, "something, on the other hand, I have always felt with each job," he finishes with a smile. "I'm going advanced, learning things. But it is true that I think that abandoning a adolescence of a film, to me they are starting to grow hair, and that the Pompidou is a clear signal". Lacuesta won his first Shell with The pasos dobles (2011), premiered at the long with Cravan vs. Cravan (2002), this Between two waters is the continuation of The legend of time (2006)... "I like these games of doubles, the echoes. There's a part of me that loves the films composed of many materials, collages, born out of the game," he reflects. "In my films has always been a time in the I'm a mother, or that is in two parts, as in the legend of The time. Now I understand that it looks too much to the filmmaker trying things out, that hinders the understanding of the viewer. Every time I'll bet for most transparent forms".
Portrait-social almost by surpriseIsaki Lacuesta, at the Pompidou centre in Paris.
Lacuesta has been portraying the society in his films. More clearly, in the diptych the legend of The time / Between two waters , filmed in the district of The Casería de San Fernando (Cádiz). “With time I've realized that what I do continuously. In The skin itself showed the Catalonia rural closed. In Between two waters there is a certain despair, because all their potentialities have been removed. Now the two brothers, main characters project their desires on their daughters. We note your age, my age, who are parents”.
Of his own duplicity, the of the two Shells of Gold, Lacuesta understand that it goes beyond the frivolity: "no longer treat me as an intruder, I feel that they have changed things. However, it does not change my position in the industry, and the rejection of some tv's in my films". You do not want to delve deeper, but is somewhat annoying for those reprobaciones.
in contrast, In the Pompidou, red carpet. “One of the facilities facing one of my films with another. And yes, re the dichotomy”. Lacuesta takes the iPad and begins to open videos that illustrate what counts. “Here are the images echo, which are seven screens, three to the right and left and one at the bottom. The idea is that the film serves to be in two places at once.” To do this it has used footage previously, as passers-by in Johannesburg (south Africa). “Might appear to be images of the Harlem of the fifties”. In the background you hear a voice in off that says: “If you don't know where we are, it would cost me to guess. When I see the images, I feel that they are living what they were not able to enjoy their parents and grandparents”. There are seven tours to show how the world has changed. “In the end it's the age old question: where am I?”.Updated Date: 28 November 2018, 00:31
