RAPTURE / ARREBATO

27/9/2020, 22:30, TRIANON

The most legendary film of Spanish underground cinema, and a favourite of Almodóvar’s, it became a curse and the swan song of its outrageously talented creator with later generations proclaiming it a modern classic. As a second-class director tries to solve the enigmatic disappearance of an old acquaintance, who believed film had the magical ability to secure a person passage to another reality, “Arrebato” is a horror film and a marvellous commentary on the ultra hallucinogenic power, the stupefying effect and the vampire-like dimension of cinema. A digitally restored version will be screened for the first time in this country. Screened for the first time in Greece in its digital restoration.


SPAIN | 1979 | COLOR | DCP | 105' | SPANISH

A director of b-movie horror films, addicted to cinema and heroin, receives the audiovisual diary of a cousin of his ex. In the diary, the cousin has documented their two meetings, and the rather strange experiment (and result) of his self-filming while he sleeps.

A sinister red frame that multiplies, a camera that ‘aims and shoots’, dead-end relationships, ‘independent’ filming, Wagner, and extensive vampiric cinephilia (Powell, Argento, Bergman, among many others) compose an Iberian cult art-horror film which, anachronistically, one may find reminiscent of David Cronenberg’s mutation horror and the psychosis of shooting. Almodóvar is one of its eternal fans, while thanks to his friendship with Zulueta we can hear him briefly in the dubbing of an actress. I.D.
