A Vocabulary for the Future

Projected Words

"A Vocabulary for the Future" in coproduction with Institut Ramon Llull and Film London



Six original new shorts that bring together six Catalan-language writers and six young British filmmakers. These films are added to the ongoing project “A Vocabulary for the Future”, which already includes 30 audiovisual pieces with the participation of some one hundred local and international thinkers and creators. The project is an invitation to rethink the way we inhabit the present and project ourselves into the future.

We’re joining in the celebration of Sant Jordi, the Catalan literature festival on 23 April, with the projection of six original short films that are the result of collaboration between six Catalan writers and six British filmmakers. For three days, the films will be screened without interruption on the big screen in the Pati de les Dones courtyard and in the Foyer of the CCCB. The works have been produced by the Institut Ramon Llull, the CCCB and Film London.

On this occasion, the words added to the Vocabulary have been chosen by Pol Guasch, Llucia Ramis, Miquel de Palol, Borja Bagunyà, Muriel Villanueva and Najat El Hachmi, and animated by a group of young British filmmakers selected by Film London: Noémi Varga, Graeme Arnfield, Julia Parks, Rémy Bazerque, Nosa Eke and Ezra Myers.

This collaboration between the CCCB, the Institut Ramon Llull and Film London forms part of the Spotlight on Catalan Culture in the UK, promoted on the occasion of The London Book Fair, where Catalan culture will have a prominent place.

What if desire wasn’t the expression of a lack? What if the object of our desire wasn’t an object but an aggregate? What if what we desired wasn’t a person but all the moments that make them up, all the things they’ve read, all the places that live inside them? Producing something by desiring, manufacturing a unique world, a composition of elements coming together.
