Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

José Luis Guerín (b. 1960) is a Spanish filmmaker and educator, known for his meditative [1] and intellectually curious [2][3] work in both documentary and narrative filmmaking.

Describing Guerín in an introduction to a series of his films, the programmers of the Harvard Film Archive wrote: "Guerín's films purposefully confound narrative and documentary traditions, discovering rich narrative threads woven into the tapestries of his real life subjects and unraveling mysteries without solutions that nevertheless leave the viewer deeply satisfied."[4]

Influences

As a young cinephile, Guerín attended many film screenings, made films on Super 8 and 16mm [5] and sought out and befriended many of the filmmakers he admired, including Robert Bresson[6], Raoul Ruiz [7] and Philippe Garrel[8]. Guerín's films are often described as being influenced by the Lumière Brothers[9], Howard Hawks[10], Yasujiro Ozu[11] and John Ford (Guerín went so far as to shoot a film in Innisfree, the setting of Ford's The Quiet Man).
