Highlights from Punto de Vista, 2020
Streaming now through October 13
Every year in Pamplona, Spain, the Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival of Navarra invites artists and audiences from around the world to discover innovative new nonfiction works through screenings, discussions, retrospectives, competitions, and presentations. Among those featured in 2020 are the distinctive oeuvres of four filmmakers who over the years have built an informal community through cinema. The festival publication Meditations on the Present: Ute Aurand, Helga Fanderl, Jeannette Mu?oz and Renate Sami (2020, English/Spanish) portrays this constellation of intergenerational collaborators through their own reflections as well as through essays about their work, their mutual friendships, and influences. Selected here are three films from each artist. With thanks to the artists and Garbi?e Ortega, artistic director.
