The Filmoteca de Cataluña pays homage to the cinematographer on April 24 and 25 in two sessions in which Tomàs Pladevall will present the movie «GAUDÍ» (1988) directed by Manuel Huerga, and «TREN DE SOMBRAS» (1996) directed by José Luis Guerin. Before it will be presented documents of the preparation and filming of these amazing films which are extracted from the files that the Tomàs himself has given to the Filmoteca Catalana.
Tomàs Pladevall (1946) is one of the most representative cinematographers of Catalan cinematography. His works with Bellmunt, Herralde, Camino, Nunes, Luna, Benpar, Pons, Portabella, Guardiet, Vergés, Gas, Huerga or Guerín are proof of the great stylistic variety and aesthetic exploration of his work.
