¡Viva Berlanga! Exhibition
TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center
2021 is the Year of Berlanga
This is how his native town has chosen to recognize the 100th anniversary of the birth of this incomparable filmmaker, possibly the last of the Enlightenment artists.
And to kick off the celebrations for this very special birthday, the Valencia Museum of the Enlightenment and Modernity will be hosting an exhibition titled ¡Viva Berlanga! A Cinema Story.
An homage to the man who succeeded in portraying Spain’s recent history in a very personal way, including an extensive review of his filmography and artistic legacy, which continues to enjoy international recognition today.
The exhibition features dozens of posters for his films and publications disseminating information about his work from the 1950s to the 1990s.
Rounding out the show are such disparate and Berlangesque objects as a tractor, a motocarro (a sort of covered three-wheeled motorcycle), cameras, photographs, and even objects that trace the filmmaker's relationship with the Fallas festival.
Stop in and see it until 19th September (free admission) and remember that the museum also offers guided tours.
