Albert Serra



Born in Spain in 1975, Albert Serra studied literature and art history at Barcelona University. In 2006 he wrote, directed and produced his first feature film, HONOR OF THE KNIGHTS (QUIXOTIC), followed by BIRDSONG (2008); both were selected for the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. In 2010 he made ELS NOMS DE CRIST before directing, a year later, El senyor ha fet en mi meravelles for the exhibition Correspondencias at Barcelona. These two films were screened at Locarno in the Fuori concorso section in 2011. That same year he was also one of sixty filmmakers who contributed to 60 SECONDS OF SOLITUDE IN YEAR ZERO, a series of short one-minute films about the death of cinema.

Spanish solitaire and a juror of the Between the Seas section, Albert Serra, winning the Golden Leopard Award at Locarno Film Festival, gained renown for his triptych of unprecedented adaptations – Honor de cavalleria, Birdsong and The Story of My Death, in which classical literary figures Don Quixote, Casanova or Dracula act as abstract, but all the more fascinating principles...





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
