DIRECTOR: Ventura Pons

WITH: Siân Phillips, Claire Bloom, Joan Carreras, Eulàlia Ballart

Salvador Dalí’s complex personality is thoroughly explored in Ventura Pons’s luminous biopic. Based on the memories of Dalí’s sister, who studied for some years in Cambridge, she recounts her life with the famous painter with her British friend. Ventura Pons met Dalí on many occasions as they both admired the Catalan village of Cadaqués, background to many of Dalí’s paintings and to Pons’s beautiful film.


We are delighted to welcome director Ventura Pons and actress Claire Bloom to the screening on Saturday 27th October for a Q&A with the audience.
