'Seven' and Taboada, stars of the Festival's official books

‘Seven. Los pecados de David Fincher’ (Seven. David Fincher’s Sins) presents a study on this masterpiece developed by different critics and with a prologue by Festival Director Àngel Sala

Sitges 2015 will be hosting the presentation of the Festival’s official books:  Seven. Los pecados de David Fincher, a publication that reviews the origins and unmeasurable influence of one of the most important films in modern genre cinema and Taboada, a portrait of Mexican filmmaker Carlos Enrique Taboada.

The premiere of Seven (1995) represented a turning point in the thriller genre. With his proposal, its director, David Fincher, mapped out a new path towards the psycho thriller, where the police genre is masterfully crossed with the most visceral horror. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of Seven’s premiere, the 48th Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia will be hosting the presentation of the Festival’s official book Seven. Los pecados de David Fincher, a volume published by Tyrannosaurus Books and coordinated by Desireé de Fez, that includes different interpretations of this classic by diverse writers, journalists and film critics. The presentation of the two books will be Sunday 11 October as part of the Festival and organized by Ángel Sala and Desirée De Fez.

Seven. Los pecados de David Fincher is coordinated by Desireé de Fez –film critic for different media outlets and member of the Festival team– and includes the essays of diverse authors: Daniel Ausente, who has participated in different books and publications like Mondo Brutto, Rockdelux, 2000 Maníacos, Tentacles, Z or Presencia Humana; Quim Casas, film critic for El Periódico de Catalunya, Dirigido por and Sensacine; Noel Ceballos, writer and journalist, a contributor to Fotogramas, GQ or El Confidencial; Fausto Fernández, film critic for Fotogramas and author of several books; Jorge Gorostiza, author of various books and articles on cinema and architecture, and John Tones, the usual pen-name of Pedro Berruezo, journalist, screenwriter and author.

Taboada –written by several authors– is a study and homage to Mexican director Carlos Enrique Taboada, also published by Tyrannosaurus Books, in collaboration with the Mexican festival Mórbido, and will be kicking off Brigadoon’s fabulous book collection. The presentation of this publication will be attended by José Miguel Rodríguez, Tyrannosaurus Books publisher; Diego López, in charge of the Brigadoon section; Pablo Guisa, director of the Morbido Fest, and Christian Cueva, author of the film Taboada. This year, the Brigadoon section will be screening Christian Cuevas’ Jirónopera prima, revolving around the Mexican filmmaker. The documentary will be accompanied by a retrospective on Taboada including the films Poison for the Fairies (1984) and Más negro que la noche (1975), among others.
