Hoping to satisfy your thirst for cinematic knowledge and meet a successful filmmaker?
This Friday the Speaking in Cinema series at Miami Beach Cinematheque will host filmmaker Albert Serra at its screening of his latest film, The Death of Louis XIV. The historical film explores the family life of King Louis XIV in his final moments. After the screening Albert Serra will discuss this and his other works with critic & filmmaker Yonca Tala.
The Miami Beach Cinematheque’s Speaking in Cinema Series was developed and supported by a grant from the Knight Foundation in 2013 to provide a richer appreciation of cinema through a string of conversations focusing on filmmaking styles led by local filmmakers and professional critics. The brainchild of the Cinematheque’s director, Dana Keith, Speaking in Cinema happens a few months throughout the year during which the selected hosts and guest have an interactive conversation with the audiences, which allows all parties to understand and analyze cinema not only as an art but also its own meta-language which goes beyond sampling entertainment.
The series started as a two year program but due to its success was expanded to an continual series. To date Speaking in Cinema‘s eleven installments have featured works from professionals such as Daniel Patrick Carbone, Brontis Jodorowsky, Benoit Debie, and Harmony Korine.
