"The resemblance between the creative output of the two filmmakers ... is of an intransigent morality of artistic creation. This similarity is expressed in their films by an ethics of form that means that their films have an unmistakeable aesthetic kinship ..."
Featuring the original essay by exhibition co-curator Alain Bergala, from the 2006 showing of Correspondences in Spain, a co-production of the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and la Casa Encendida de Madrid. Bergala takes us through the fascinating story of two artists whose lives, lived separate, found numerous parallels, and eventually came together for this unique collaboration.
With full-colour images and biographies of both artists this is a valuable companion to any study of the works of Abbas Kiarostami and Víctor Erice.
