Xcèntric Cinema. Conversations on the creative process and the filmic vision takes us into the workshop of the filmmaker, that personal space in which film creators think about their working methods and aesthetic ideas. A constellation of images, experiences, notes and inspirational ideas from some great filmmakers that serve as a notebook of creative projects and which help to expand our imaginative field. Dialogues about ways of seeing, thinking and discovering the possibilities of the camera, editing, light and colour; possible ways of filming portraits, human figures and landscapes; ways of exploring the links between cinema, poetry and painting; conversations about film stock itself and the conceptual or manual processes that take place before we manage to refine an idea or a form. Each one of the 15 filmmakers in this book — all of whom are considered essential to the history of artistic and poetic cinema — take as their point of departure a series of images, from the filmmakers’ own works or those of other artists, with the aim of discussing them and sharing the specific ways in which they achieve their filmic vision; or rather, that which you can only see thanks to cinema.

This volume marks the first collaboration etween Terranova and a public institution, in this case Barcelona center for Contemporary Culture and its film program XCentric Cinema.

The book is published in a double independent edition with english or spanish text.
