The Ex- of Experimental Cinema: the 1970s Films of Antoni Padrós

This talk focuses on the politics of marginality in the 1970s work of Catalan experimental filmmaker Antoni Padrós. It seeks to draw parallels between formal experiment and political militancy in Padrós’ two full-length features from this period, Lock Out (1973) and The Shirley Temple Story (1976).
