Pere Portabella (Spain) maintained since 1960s a political commitment with the movement against the Franco dictatorship. He was elected Senator in the first democratic elections (1977) and participated in the writing of the present day Spanish Constitution. Honoured with the Creu de Sant Jordi (1999), the highest recognition possible from the Generalitat de Catalunya, the award-winning filmmaker has been an irreplaceable figure in the Spanish film world for the last 50 years. His acclaimed work has been shown worldwide in major exhibitions and retrospectives, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2007); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2003); and Documenta 11 (2002).
