  • Xcèntric: Burning with love. The Super-8 films of Val del Omar

    Xcèntric opens the 2017 season with a special extraordinary session: a selection of the home movies of filmmaker José Val del Omar, made from reels from his family archive, accompanied by the live music of Niño de Elche.

    In the 1970s, Val del Omar started to film frequently in Super 8. These reels, in the form of essays and notebooks, include the fabulous experiences with image and light that he investigated in his PLAT laboratory, and a series of private recordings (trips, holidays, portraits), that also include variations and experiments on his main themes (water, flowers, the Alhambra…). Transfiguring his most everyday reality, Val del Omar continued the revelations of its mecamystics: “The extraordinary is in the bowels of the everyday […] I feel as though I am submerged in a palpitating being. Logical chains enchain and imprison us.” A selection of these images, rarely before shown in public, can now be seen through the “collective eye” which, for Val del Omar, is the cinema.
