Film Critic Murtaza Ali Khan to present a six-film retrospective on Carlos Saura at Instituto Cervantes

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

Instituto Cervantes New Delhi, in collaboration with Casa de la India (Valladolid, Spain), presents as a culmination of the photography exhibition Flamenco-India, by Carlos Saura (which was exhibited at our center until February of this year), and as a posthumous tribute, a cycle dedicated to the Spanish film director Carlos Saura (1932-2023).

Carlos Saura, along with Luis Buñuel and Pedro Almodóvar, is one of the most renowned international filmmakers in Spanish cinema. His work extends over more than sixty years and is marked by the investigation of visual and plastic limits in the seventh art. Cinema, together with photography, have accompanied him in his passion for rethinking traditional Spanish culture and placing it in the present, while projecting his artistic personality into the future.

On bestowing him with the Goya of Honor in 2023 award, the Spanish Film Academy has given a significant recognition to his work. We would also like to highlight that the Aragonese filmmaker received the 'Satyajit Ray Lifetime Achievement Award' in Goa in 2022 at the IFFI (International Film Festival of India).

The screenings will take place at Instituto Cervantes (Hanuman Road, 48, 110001, New Delhi).

“Carlos Saura was not just one of the most important filmmakers from the Spanish world alongside Luis Buñuel and Pedro Almodóvar, but he was one of the most influential filmmakers worldwide. And yet his films apart from Carmen and the Flamenco trilogy at large, have not reached the Indian audience like those of Almodóvar. That's why the upcoming retrospective on the Spanish master filmmaker holds great importance from the point of view of introducing the younger Indian audiences to some of the most fascinating works of Carlos Saura”.Murtaza Ali Khan, curator and presenter of the series.
