pain and glory

23 August, – 12 September, 2019

Pain and Glory tells of a series of re-encounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in physical decline. Some encounters are in person, others remembered: his childhood in the 1960s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity; his first desire; his first adult love in the Madrid of the 1980s; the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense; writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable; his early discovery of cinema; and the void, the infinite void, that creates the capacity for him to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life, and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
