Joaquín Jordà and Jacinto Esteva's debut feature is a filmic delirium that falls somewhere between Pop Art and the avant-garde. A major work of Spanish cinema and a touchstone of the Barcelona School Movement, Dante no es unicamente severo, stands as the manifesto film of sorts for the movement. The film deals with the issue of censorship during the Franco era by constantly manipulating the form especially in experimenting with anti-narrative montages, obtuse language, inscrutable dialogue, and innuendo, often making it difficult for the board of censors to comprehend. The film's lack of plot and non-linear narrative becomes an interesting reflection or meditation on the inability of the cinema to tell a story. So simple and, at the same time, so profoundly subversive.

Joaquim Jordà/Jacinto Esteva Grewe, Spain, 1967, 78 min.

Screening as part of the Subversive Elements series.
Presented with the cooperation of Institut Ramon Llull and Filmoteca de Catalunya. Special thanks to Herb Shellenberger and Almudena Escobar Lopez.
