  3. Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape

    Carroll Moore / Arts In Film, Documentary, International, Shorts / USA / 2012 / Art, Art History, Biography, Buddhism, Poetry, Politics / 32 mins
    Narrated by Ed Harris, this film is a portrait of Catalan artist Joan Miró, who was passionately committed to his native Catalonia and its struggle for independence from Spain. But he also longed to escape into artistic freedom. This tension drove his art in strange and beautiful ways. Miro was by turns influenced by Dada, surrealism, and abstract expressionism. His changes in styles and subjects also reflected the horrific events of the Spanish Civil War, World War II, and the dictatorship of Franco. This documentary includes original footage shot in Barcelona and Catalonia, interviews with scholars, images of Miro's paintings and sculpture, and archival footage and photos.
