Helio SanMiguel Co-Edits World Film Locations: Barcelona

WFLBarcelona-CoverBarcelona is a city with a long and rich cinematic legacy. Great directors from all over the world – among them Michelangelo Antonioni, Woody Allen, Pedro Almodóvar, Ken Loach, Hiroshi Teshigahara, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Tom Tykwer, Bigas Luna, etc. – have set their films there. World Film Locations: Barcelona, co-edited by ADHT’s Helio SanMiguel, is the first book of its kind to explore the rich cinematic history of this seductive Spanish city. The book features 46 scene reviews focusing on specific locations, and six illuminating essays that cover essential themes of the city’s cinematic history, including the origins of cinema in Barcelona, the role of Ciutat Vella (old quarter) as a film set, the influential Barcelona School of the 1960s, the film presence of Gaudí and his work, changing attitudes and urban renewal before and after the 1992 Olympics and the emergence of a new generation of female film-makers that have made Barcelona the center of their cinematic explorations.
