In the White City by Alain Tanner
One City, One Film
This August the Filmoteca de Catalunya is putting on a series of films in which images of cities take a central role. From Barcelona to New York, Lisbon to Tokyo, Billy Wilder to Alain Tanner, Ingmar Bergman to Jules Dassin, there is something for everyone here.
Look out for Tanner's In the White City, the tale of a Swiss sailor jumping ship in Lisbon, and Japanese director Yasujirô Ozu's 1953 masterpiece Tokyo Story, often considered as one of the greatest films ever made.
Films will be shown in the original language with Castilian subtitles. To see the timetable of films, click here. Entrance is €4.
