Alex Proyas's master class was held today in the Tramuntana Room. The visionary sense of his movies and his style when conceiving and filming potential, dark worlds were one of the central themes of this talk with the attending audience.
The diverse influences on Proyas' work, mainly great science fiction authors like Philip K. Dick, Ray Bradbury or Isaac Asimov, gave way to different topics of conversation with the attending audience, mainly revolving around three of his most important films: The Crow, Dark City and I, Robot.
In addition, the recently inaugurated Tramuntana Room also hosted a series of questions and answers with director Tarsem Singh, the acclaimed video clip creator, among them the very popular Losing My Religion by R.E.M., and director of the captivating film The Cell (2000), highly praised thanks to the richness of its visual textures and the formal treatment of color.
Today in Sitges Tarsem presented The Fall, his most recent movie selected to compete for the precious Honorary Maria Award in the Official Selection.
