Nocturno 29

Directed by Pere Portabella
Spain, 1968
Fantasy, Horror


Nocturno 29 begins where No compteu amb els dits left off: facing a blank screen and the materialness of the projection. It goes in depth into the future Eisenstein-like structure of Portabella’s films which do not advance through a lineal time, but rather by a succession of autonomous scenes.

Our take

Starkly shot in evocative black and white, Nocturno 29 is a moody masterpiece from renaissance man Pere Portabella (politician, experimental filmmaker, senator, intellectual, and the producer of Luis Bunuel’s Viridiana!) co-scripted by the great poet Joan Brossa.
