Walls Can Talk

Las paredes hablan

In his final film, acclaimed filmmaker Carlos Saura uses the documentary as a form of artistic testament portraying the evolution and relationship of art with the wall as a creative canvas, travelling from the first graphic revolutions of the prehistoric caves to the most avant-garde urban expressions.

A thrilling and personal journey and accompanied by figures including Miquel Barceló (the first contemporary artist still alive to expose his work at the Louvre) and Suso 33 (a Madrid-based artist in the Graffiti and Muralism worlds) among many others, Saura steps in front of the camera to examine the very nature of creation.

Juxtaposing 30,000-year-old cave paintings and 21st century urban street art, this is a filmic conversation about the artistic fire that burns within those who must create to thrive, and how their works are endlessly expressive and influential. This immersive film will have you walking past street art and relating to it in new ways.

This film will be preceded by Saura’s short film Goya: May 3
