A multidimensional journey through time, sound, architecture and filmmaking, set in the city of Recife. Kleber Mendonça Filho explores his home city through the great movie theatres which played such a vital role in fostering his love for the medium.
Combining archive documentary, mystery, film clips and personal memories, Pictures of Ghosts is a moving and playful film that examines both the architectural and social structures of his home city and his relationship to cinema and the spaces it inhabits.
The ICA is delighted to present the London Premiere of Pictures of Ghosts on 1 December followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Kleber Mendonça Filho and producer Emilie Lesclaux, hosted by ICA Cinema Curator Nicolas Raffin.
The London Premiere will be followed by a week-long run in the ICA Cinema.
