Screening: Pere Portabella – General Report II

13 Jul 2016

Following his monumental 1978 essay film General Report on Certain Matters of Interest for a Public Screening, Pere Portabella presents General Report II, a film that looks at neoliberal politics, exploring the current state of  economic, social and ecological aspects of European democracy from a cultural standpoint.
The film encompasses a wide range of perspectives as it navigates audiences through footage of public demonstrations, symposia and more intimate conversations between politicians, grassroots activists, cultural workers, academics and scientists. Much like its predecessor, the film emerges at a critical point in Spain’s political and economic history.
Asking how cultural institutions such as the museum can function as a space for debate, General Report II explores various modes of political participation. Resisting any definitive solutions, Portabella’s unique approach to documentary takes the pulse of the communities, networks and social movements implicated in Europe’s cultural, political-economic and energy crises.
