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.

Foolishness is a pointed form of obsession, covered in sharp edges: it persists in the power of a drift and a delay. It is a political postponement―and a killjoy―of instant gratification. It is the opposite of personal branding and inflated egos. Foolishness aspires to impersonality: it ...

To I

Miquel de Palol and Graeme Arnfield
