Did You Know?
2009. Bigas Luna
suggested to Sergi Rubió
that he removed a scene containing explicit sex of the Bigas Luna film Caniche
(1979), which appeared as archive footage in the documentary, so that Sergi Rubió's film would not have problems with censorship in film festivals and on television, and to avoid the possibility of offending audiences. See more
When I make a film, I don't want the symbolic interpretation of what I am doing, to be too obvious. I do think we have to be generous to the people going to the cinema, but I don't want to produce only pure entertainment either. But I don't want to be cryptic either. I think that to achieve a perfect highly symbolical story, the symbolical load has to be underneath. As something that is present, but that someone that has seen the film can say he has not noticed. That would be wonderful.
In those days (and this is one of those short films) Sergi Rubió
always signed his work with the following link: myspace.com/sergirubio way at the bottom, at the very end of the credits, instead of the name of the production company, the distributor or at least the name of the person who owned the rights, not to mention the closing titles which one would find at the end of just about any commercial film.
