Joan Miró. The Ladder of Escape

National Gallery of Art, Landover, Maryland, USA 2012, 30’, E (without subtitles)

Produced in 2012 in conjunction with the eponymous exhibition at the National Gallery in Washington D.C., this appealingly concentrated film explores the tension between Joan Miró’s passion for independence for Catalonia and his insistence on artistic freedom. Miró’s direct and resolute working process comes across with surprising clarity.
