Angel Orensanz presents tonight at The New Latin American Cinema Festival in Havana, Cuba his internationally acclaimed short film entitled The Last Score, a surrealistic re- interpretation of the work of Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal.
By chance of fate Orensanz’s personal work entered cinema history when he completed the shooting of his film “The Last Score ” on an island in Wales overlooking Sweden on the very day Ingmar Bergman died. The Spanish artist filmed with his crew on the cliffs of the Atlantic coast during his retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Wales.
Angel Orensanz has developed an extensive body of work as a sculptor. During his film career, partly influenced by his friendship with Luis Buñuel, he kept investigating the space between the public and the personal, the permanent and the temporary with his own artistic approach to the void and instability between the two.
Angel Orensanz frequently participates in international cinema events such as the festival in Sundance, Monaco, Florence, Tokyo, Huesca and Pilas, Rio Bravo and Cannes.
His collection of video work “The Angel Orensanz Portfolio” is available from the Circulating Library of New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
The Last Score premiers on Thursday, December 9 at 7:30 pm at the Wilfredo Lam Art Center in Havana. Curated by Jorge Fernandez three other films of Angel Orensanz are scheduled for the following days of the festival until December 12.
