We have brought together fifty portraits from the essential work of the photographer Óscar Fernández Orengo in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute and the AECID (Spanish Agency for International Cooperation). The most important filmmakers in Spain have been subjects in front of his camera; from different generations and genres, and with different ways of understanding the seventh art. The viewpoint of Orengo unifies a myriad of outlooks in powerful black and white portraits in a panoramic format. The exhibition, a follow-up to Through My Eyes, which has toured the world in tens of Cervantes Institutes worldwide, and AECID cultural centres, provides a view of the faces and habitats of filmmakers vital to our present and recent past, such as Pedro Almodóvar, Álex de la Iglesia, Iciar Bollain, Fernando León de Aranoa, Fernando Trueba, Mario Camus and José Luis Garci. The exhibition started a long tour that took to several continents and to very different countries.
