Pedro Almodóvar Book Signing!!!

Submitted by on Sunday, 13 November 2011No Comment

MONDAY 14

 

Filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar stops by Taschen for a meet and greet…and signing of new book The Pedro Almodovar Archives. Q&A hosted by Paper Magazine’s Editor Kim Hastreiter.

 

A self-taught auteur, Almodóvar draws on influences as diverse as Douglas Sirk, Frank Tashlin, Andy Warhol and John Waters. His feature films borrow liberally from, and frequently invert, traditional genres of classic American cinema—including film noir, melodrama and screwball comedy. Yet they remain unmistakably Iberian, rooted predominantly in the director’s beloved Madrid, exploring Spanish myths and modernity to the rhythms of bolero-laden soundtracks. Most recently, the enfant terrible of the 1980s arthouse scene has matured into the Academy Award-winning director of All About My Mother, a film universally acknowledged for its emotional resonance, sophistication and craftsmanship. Almodóvar’s distinctive, once marginalized world has finally entered the mainstream.

For this unprecedented monograph, Pedro Almodóvar has given TASCHEN complete access to his archives, including never-before-published images, such as personal photos he took during filming. In addition to writing captions for the photos, Almodóvar invited prominent Spanish authors to write introductions to each of his films, and selected many of his own texts to accompany this visual odyssey through his complete works.

 

Taschen, 107 Greene St bet Prince and Spring Sts, NYC, 212-226-2212, RSVP for Meet & Greet, 7-8pm, ny@taschen.com
