Murcia Festival Honors FIPRESCI
IBAFF, the International Film Festival of Murcia, Spain, presented an Honorific Award to FIPRESCI. Film critics would, so the motivation, “for more than half a century have had the courage to stimulate works that have been formally daring. These works have determined the course, in one way or another and sometimes radically, of the cinematic universe of their time”.
A small series of FIPRESCI-awarded films included “Memories of Underdevelopment (Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Cuba 1968), “La ciénaga” (Lucrecia Martel, Argentina 2001), “Jauja” (Lisandro Alonso, Argentina, 2014), “Sacrifice” (Andrei Tarkovski, Sweden 1986), “El sol del membrillo” (Victor Erice, Spain 1992), “Blisfully Yours” (Apichatpong Weerasethekul, Thailand 2001), “Leviathan” (Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Véréna Paravel, Puerto Rico 2013) and “Entranced Earth” (Glauber Rocha, Brazil 1967). “The selected works”, stated the festival, “share the editorial policy of our festival and have become not only study cases, but also emblematic works that are part of the emotional and sensorial memory of many generations of cinephiles.”
