The Names of Christ [Els noms de Crist] Albert Serra

Albert Serra Retrospective

An episodic film, divided into 14 chapters, based on the play De los Nombres de Cristo (1586), by Fray Luis de Leon and on Are You Ready for TV?. Filmed partly in the rooms of MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona), it is about the difficulty of naming or visually representing abstract concepts.
