We are referring to a curator and graduate in Art History, famous in the world of Photography, who has organized an intensive series of online conferences in March in collaboration with the prestigious KBr Photography Center of the Mapfre Foundation.
In this photographic cycle we want to highlight the relationship between photography and exhibition from all historiographical and theoretical perspectives. Then, the conferences will take place every Tuesday in March and will continue even during the month of April, also in the native language of each guest and will be completely free.
So if you like photography and want to delve into the theme of the exhibitions, whether you are a photographer or an amateur, we encourage you to sign up for each presentation and conference. We are sure that you will learn a lot.

We continue with feminist issues and the defense of women’s rights. In this sense, music is not an exception to raise the voice of support for women. For this reason, one more year, the mythical Luz de Gas room will offer a live concert with a solidarity motive against gender violence.
So take note because next Monday, March 8, on International Women’s Day, the curtain will be opened by singer Maria del Mar Bonet and other established artists such as Mayte Martín, Gemma Humet, Beth, Sara Roy, Elena Gadel & Marta Robles and Balkan Paradise Orchestra.
And if you like movies…
Watching a series at home is not bad at all. But going to the movies is a unique experience that has no comparison. That is why below, we tell you what are the movies that you can enjoy this March. Take note!
Drive my car
Ryûsuke Hamaguchi shares a Murakami short story and magically expands it into three captivating hours (the credits don’t roll until the 40th minute!). Reeling from the sudden death of his wife Oto, theater director Yusuke heads to Hiroshima to stage ‘Uncle Vanya’ with his young chauffeur. The genius of the film is how the script takes the themes of Murakami’s story (loss, love, jealousy, healing) and finds an echo in Chekhov’s famous work.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s most acclaimed film to date is this San Fernando Valley palimpsest with so many bubbles it practically bursts off the screen. The biggest blow to ‘Licorice Pizza,’ however, is its casting. Alana Haim of the Haim group is Alana Kane, 25, a photographer’s assistant bewildered to run into Gary Valentine, a high school student ten years her junior.
Tammy Faye’s eyes
A gorgeous Jessica Chastain is the queen of the party in this biopic about a popular televangelist in America in the 1970s and 1980s. Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband, Jim, built a religious empire from scratch with feet of clay, with a network of television networks that connected with his program and even with a theme park project dedicated to the evangelical faith. Andrew Garfield accompanies Chastain in an x-ray of the fragility of the American dream.
Marc Sempere and Leire Apellaniz show the viewer their fascination for an innovative artist in a film that escapes the usual portrait to talk about the personality and work of Niño de Elche, but also about the shock wave that the musician provokes in his path. A look that allows us to understand the impact of this creator, to photograph the cultural moment that Spain is experiencing, and to make a profound reflection on the role of tradition and heterodoxy in an art such as flamenco.
Sony hands over the start of a new franchise to the newest goose that lays the golden eggs, Tom Holland. The protagonist of ‘Spider-Man: No way home’, the only movie capable of recovering pre-pandemic collections, puts himself in the shoes of an adventurer who travels the world as a treasure hunter. With Mark Wahlberg as a partner in adventures and Antonio Banderas as the bad guy, this version of a popular video game aims to break the bad luck of other failed adaptations, such as ‘Tomb raider’ or ‘Assassin’s creed’.
Second Hand Market Flee
Here’s proof that animation can conquer the world just as accurately as it delivers magical flights of fancy. ‘Flee’, by Jonas Poher Rasmussen, tells the story of the French-Danish director’s friend, a gay Afghan refugee who is desperately trying to flee the tyranny of the mujahideen and come to terms with his own sexuality. Possibly the most political film of the year.
Cycle of the Filmoteca de Catalunya in March
