A visually immersive exploration of the provocative and humanistic themes at the heart of Almodvars cinema Pedro Almodvar is one of the most daring and influential writer-directors of our time. He directed his first feature in 1980, during La Movida Madrilea (the Madrid Scene), a countercultural and democratic movement in Spain, and has been pushing boundaries for over four decades. Often outlandish and provocative, and rife with passion, Almodvars 22 films to date explore the full spectrum of the human condition. In the process, they have transformed Spanish cinema and contributed invaluably to the global film scene. Pedro Almodvar: Installation/Instalacin accompanies an immersive exhibition created by Almodvar for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. Spanning 1984s What Have I Done to Deserve This? to 2019s Pain and Glory, Almodvars 12-channel film installation distills his filmography around iconic scenes and key themes including Family, Bodies, Guilt and Pain, Mothers, Musicals, Noir and Religious Education. This lush volume devotes a visual chapter to each, showcasing Almodvars musesincluding Victoria Abril, Antonio Banderas, Pina Bausch, Penlope Cruz, Rossy de Palma, Marisa Paredes and Julieta Serranoand the inspiration he draws from filmmakers such as Ingmar Bergman and Luis Buuel. The bilingual (Spanish and English) book also features a new conversation between Almodvar and film journalist Rachel Handler, a foreword by Tilda Swinton, texts by curators Jenny He and J. Ral Guzmn, an afterword by Agustn Almodvar, and a richly illustrated filmography. As bold and beautiful as Almodvars films themselves, Pedro Almodvar: Installation/Instalacin captures the dynamic female characters, tantalizing stories, colorful humor and depth of emotion that exemplify this Academy Awardwinning directors career.
