All About Almodovar: Interviews, Observations and Analysis
9 May 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm|
University of Cardiff|
A lecture by Professor Mari M. Delgado (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London). Professor Delgado’s paper will examine thirteen years of collaborations with Pedro Almodóvar.
The ways in which a direct engagement with those who ‘make’ culture can assist in understanding how that culture is constructed and consumed will be explored. Exploring the interview as a methodology, Professor Delgado hopes to delineate how it opens up different perspectives on a piece of work, providing ways of highlighting process and craftsmanship, dismantling and dissecting some of the modes of constructing a piece of creative practice, unpicking the contributions of those who shape the directorial brand, and probing what is legible to different audiences. As much a contemplation of modes of seeing and ways of working, this paper also offers reflections on Almodóvar’s own commentaries on his work and how they provide a unique window into his filmmaking.
