A major figure of Spanish cinema, Pere Portabella’s contributions have included a variety of roles (such as co-producing Buñuel’s Viridiana), but most importantly as the director of a number of groundbreaking films from the 1960s and 1970s. Filmed on the set of Franco’s cult film Count Dracula starring Christopher Lee, Vampir-Cuadecuc mixes making-of footage with an investigation into the figure of the vampire. Both playful and deadly serious, with high-contrast black-and-white cinematography and an electronic soundtrack, “it is a film within a film, a discourse within a discourse, in other words, a ‘bloodsucking film’ of another.” (Portabella) New 2K Restoration
