09.11.18 - Escac talent,

Edicions de la Universitat de Barcelona and ESCAC present the book “Muertes creatives en el cine” (Creative Deaths in Cinema) by the editing professor Joan Marimón.

The book theorises the function of death in cinematographic narrative and analyses more than two hundred emblematic deaths in the seventh art, from the massacre on the Odessa stairs in Battleship Potemkin, the gorilla in King Kong shot down by planes, the murder of the shower in Psycho to The Godfather III and Blade Runner.

Joan Marimón considers that “death is, together with sex, the fundamental dramatic motor of cinematographic fiction due to its cathartic and transforming power, since its apparently negative meaning is linked to the promise of rebirth that it carries implicitly“.

The presentation of the bookMuertes creatives en el cine” will take place on 13 November at 7pm at the Cines Girona (Barcelona), with the participation of the filmmaker Roser Aguilar, the editor of Campanadas a medianoche, Elena Jaumenadreu and the editor Jaume Martí.

Joan Marimón Padrosa (El Prat de Llobregat, 1960), a graduate in Art History, teaches film editing at the ESCAC and at the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica (CCC) in Mexico City. He is the author of Diccionario incompleto del guion audiovisual (with Jesús Ramos, 2003) and El montaje cinematográfico. Del guion a la pantalla (Catalan and Spanish versions).
