In collaboration with the International Auteur Film Festival, the recent work of Thom Andersen, The Thoughts That Once We Had (2015), will be screened at the CCCB. The film brings together fragments of unidentified but often recognisable films from the last century to highlight the ambiguity and nuances of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s work. The film is also suitable for those not familiar with Deleuze’s work: “I didn’t want to make the film for people who are familiar with Deleuze’s texts,” insisted Andersen. “It is less a lecture than a wordless, associative, haunted journey—sometimes rueful and sobering, sometimes very funny—not just through the history of cinematic innovation, but through the 20th century itself.”
The film, which lasts 108 minutes, will be screened in English with Spanish subtitles. Tickets are available from €3. More information here.
