Open lecture: premiere of ‘The Matchbox’

Presentation of this previously unpublished documentary by David Airob, exploring the life and work of Joan Guerrero (black-and-white, 55 min)
“Many years ago, more than a thousand, in my hometown of Tarifa, a child wanted to photograph the wind with a matchbox…” With these words, Joan Guerrero opens The Matchbox, a 55-minute-long black-and-white documentary presenting a conversation on life through which the photojournalist describes how he feels about existence, the profession, friendship and professional ethics. In this journey through time in which human values are fused with the essence of photography, space is also found for poetry and a wealth of stories that Guerrero has accumulated as he has travelled the thousand paths of his life.
