  • Don't Count on Your Fingers

    1967. Spain. Directed by Pere Portabella. Made six years after he produced Luis Buñuel's Viridiana, Portabella's directorial debut takes the anti-narrative form of an experimental commercial consisting of fifteen short segments that explore repression and power. In Spanish, with English subtitles. 26 min.

  • Nocturno 29

    1968. Spain. Directed by Pere Portabella. Screenplay by Portabella, Joan Brossa. With Lucía Bosé, Mario Cabré. Portabella's first feature-length film—the title of which refers to the twenty-nine dark years of Franco's reign—is a collaboration with the celebrated Catalan poet Joan Brossa. Virtually dialogue-free and composed of "super-realist fragments exposing the irrelevance of everyday life" (Portabella), the film circulated clandestinely in Spain. In Spanish, with English subtitles. 85 min.
