This program highlights Chomón's final years at Pathé Frères and the beginnings of one of the lesser-known phases in the early filmmaker's career: the films he made in Barcelona between 1910 and 1912, where he also developed his own color system, Cinémacoloris. Through his work at Pathé Frères, Chomón became one of the leading figures in the field of special effects, a cornerstone of early cinema, and this program celebrates his 150th anniversary.
The program will be accompanied by a live experimental music performance by dieb13.
Fri 29 Oct, 16 h, Metro Kinokulturhaus.
