Ulises Carri贸n "Lilia Prado Superstar"

de Appel, Brouwersgracht 196, Amsterdam
鈥楿nder the motto Lilia Prado Superstar a unique film event is being organized, to be held first in Amsterdam, then in Groningen, Arnhem and Rotterdam. Five Mexican films from the early fifties will be shown in a single day in the presence of the star who plays the leading role: Lilia Prado. She is coming to the Netherlands from Mexico especially for this occasion. The extraordinary thing about the event is not only that the initiative came from De Appel art centre rather than from the film world, but also that this 鈥榮uperstar鈥 is totally unknown in the Netherlands! The event is a project of the artist Ulises Carri贸n, who travelled to Mexico for this purpose and, after a long search, selected five films from the period 1950-1952. He also ran into the star of the five films, Lilia Prado, now in her fifties, who is still active in film, television and on the stage. With a project like Lilia Prado Superstar Carri贸n attempts to recall his own culture - his past - and place it in the present, his goal being to share that culture with the society in which he now finds himself.鈥 (Press release De Appel) Time / place: 16.00 till midnight Wednesday July 4, 1984: Amsterdam, Kriterion, Roetersstraat 170 Thursday July 5, 1984: Rotterdam, Venster I, Gouvernestraat 133 Friday July 6, 1984: Groningen, Liga '68, Poelestraat 30 Saturday July 7, 1984: Arnhem, Filmhuis, Korenmarkt 42 Programme: (the films will be shown consecutively) Rumba Caliente, Gilberto Martinez Solares, 1952 Subida al Cielo, Luis Bu帽uel, 1952 live-interview with Lilia Prado Las Mujeres de mi General, Ismael Rodr铆quez, 1950 Las 3 Alegres Comadres, Tito Davison, 1952
