Special Screening: Pau and His Brother (Pau i el seu germá) (Spain, 2001, 1h52min) by Marc Recha. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A session after the screening. In Catalan, with English subtitles.

Barcelona. While visiting his mother, Pau receives a phone call: Alex, his brother who disappeared long ago, has committed suicide. Pau and his mother, who is unaware of what exactly happened, set out for the small Pyrenean village where Alex lived before he took his life. This is a journey down their common past, intimate and painful. In this part of the world, Pau and his mother will come across those who were part of Alex's life; they will become familiar with his love affairs, his anger, his world, and, quietly, step by step, they will come to life again and rediscover their own selves.

Mr. Recha is in New York for the U.S. premiere of his film, Days of August (Dies d’agost), which has been selected this year for the New York Film Festival, as well as the Locarno and Toronto festivals. Dies d’agost will be shown at the Walter Reade Theater on Sunday, October 1, at 12 p.m.  The Saturday evening preview of Pau and His Brother will be a great opportunity to meet with him and get an inside view of his ideas on filmmaking, the use of landscape in film, and film in Catalonia.

This film marks the opening of the film series Landscapes, Seascapes, Cityscapes of the Mediterranean, organized by NYU’s Center for European and Mediterranean Studies and the Catalan Center at NYU.

Documenta Spain 2006: Recent documentaries from Spain

EL TREN DE LA MEMORIA (Memory Train) by Marta Arribas y Ana Pérez, Spain, 2006, 85 min. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Produced by Iciar Bollain’s production company, “El Tren de la Memoria” takes us to a  Spain which may seem far away in the past, but which is still not so very long ago . During the 60s, two million Spaniards left their country, driven by the need to earn a living. They headed for Germany, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands. They were illegal, traveling without work permits and many were illiterate. Ahead of them lay strange, cold places with strange languages and cultures. As Spain deals with a new wave of immigration, the emotional and surprising “El Tren de la Memoria” narrates from the protagonists’ own shoes, this vital part of the country’s history that remains conveniently forgotten.

With the support of the Consulate General of Spain in New York and the collaboration of the International Documentary Association (

Film Series: Images Against Amnesia – A window into memory

SANTA CRUZ POR EJEMPLO (Spain, Austria, 2005, 65 min.) by Günter Schwaiger. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A session. In Spanish with English subtitles.

One locality, Santa Cruz de la Salceda, is taken as an example. In 1936, nine residents were murdered by supporters of the band of the dictator Franco. Some of these victims were exhumed, and laid to rest, in 2003 and 2004. The impact of the massacre at that time on the people, and the enormous repression which followed it, leaving its aftermath down to the present time, is portrayed through witnesses and family members, exhumation volunteers and technicians,and the residents themselves of Santa Cruz.

Together with the Documentary Project Imágenes contra el olvido (, and with the cooperation of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the King Juan Carlos Center has organized a film series of documentaries on the historical memory of the Spanish Civil War. With the support of the Consulate
