Exhibition – Nosferatu by Juan Ros (until 10th January) in the Domus del Pórtico room.
Casablanca, Blue Velvet, Los Pájaros and Moby Dick inspired the multidisciplinary artist Juan Ros. Around 40 works with different techniques such as digital prints, watercolour or acrylics on different surfaces, can be seen in the Loft 113 Gallery in Murcia and in the El Batel auditorium in Cartagena. Juan Ros is a multidisciplinary artist from Cartagena. Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Valencia, he is a singer of the folk-punk group Malezas and currently works as an art teacher at IES Isaac Peral in Cartagena.
Exhibition – The FICC50 ‘FIFTY’ (until January 14th)
Designed by Pepo Devesa, the exhibition is divided into two parts. The first part turns the room into a sort of container with the history of the festival through all kinds of objects and documents (requests for films, banners, original photos, posters, jury minutes, programmes and even commemorative postmarks). In the second part, the tangible and physical memory of the festival is left behind so that the spectator immerses himself in a sensory experience through audiovisual memory, directly related to the city that has hosted it for fifty years.
On the Paseo de los Héroes de Cavite, a sample of photographs corresponding to different stages of the festival is exhibited. In them, and between jury meetings, screenings, tributes and closings, great names of Spanish cinema appear who visited Cartagena on the occasion of the festival: Luis García Berlanga, Nadiuska, Antonio Gades and Pepa Flores, Nuria Torray, Emilio Gutiérrez Caba, María Isbert , Amparo Soler Leal, Carmen Sevilla, Antonio Ferrandis, Alfredo Landa, José Luis López Vázquez, Marisa Paredes, José Luis Garci, Manuel Alexandre, David Trueba or Alex García.
