In this delicious correspondence, the senders are some of the most relevant filmmakers in history , who recount in these letters situations they have experienced, more or less hidden feelings or decisions they have made and that have marked their trajectories. Thus, we witness the loving relationship between Jean Cocteau and Jean Marais , we are moved by the words of François Truffaut to Jean Renoir , we enjoy the crazy "love" letter of Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky to Charles Chaplin or we attend the notorious professional rupture between Marguerite Duras and Alain Resnais . Among many other exciting episodes.
The fifty letters contained in this volume, brought together by the experts Garbiñe Ortega and Francisco Algarín Navarro for the 12th edition of Punto de Vista - International Documentary Film Festival of Navarra, represent a joyous walk through the best years of classic and contemporary cinema, hand in hand with, among others, Louis Lumière, Eric Rohmer, Maya Deren, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Jonas Mekas, Carolee Schneemann, Orson Welles, Serguéi Einsenstein, Anne-Marie Miéville, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Tati and Luis Buñuel.
A delicious way of approaching the great filmmakers from another perspective , of opening their private correspondence with impunity and immersing ourselves in their particular universes.
