Gonzalo Golpe on Galician Television (archive)

  In 2008 the Galician Television made a report about my work, which I have rescued from the archives, and here you have it. (As I speak Galician language in the interview, I put some english subtitles on it).

Framefilm #10: Zoom back camera

Image
 This is the synopsis of The Holy Mountain according to IMDB : "In a world full of corruption and greed, a powerful alchemist leads a prophetic character and seven materialistic men to a Holy Mountain where they hope to find enlightenment." Synopsis I didn't know when I first saw this movie. This led me to have no idea what I was going to see, with the subsequent impact. I had never seen anything like it, especially because of the way I saw it: a co-worker (and this will be about 20 years ago) told me: "Here's a CD with a movie that I'm sure you've never seen anything like it" . So it was. Especially since the sound was out of rhythm. Seeing The Holy Mountain for the first time with the sound out of sync... is quite an experience.

This work was commissioned for the interior poster and cover of the first issue of the extinct magazine "Coruña Hoy". The final text was modified by the staff of the aforementioned magazine: "Over eight hundred years, the city has been part, like many others, of the tremendous technological and human evolution that, step by step, is uniting humanity. It was from the end of the 23rd century when there was an unprecedented historical transformation from a monetary economy to another where basic needs were covered, an economy based on resources that put an end to wars and opened the door to human creativity in all its aspects. An economy, in short, based on collaboration and not on competition. This produced a marked evolutionary increase in a short period of time. In the case of the city of A Coruña, decisions were made that

Framefilm #8: I'll be right here

Image
  Today's performance holds an important place in the heart of the one who writes this, since it was the first movie I saw in a theater and which, as if it were a switch, turned on the inner light of a 5-year-old boy.

Framefilm #7: He didn't see it coming

  Today it is the turn of the great movie Chinatown . I recently read "The Big Goodbye," written by Sam Wasson, about the journey of making this film. If you haven't read it and are interested, I highly recommend it.
