Directed by Phil Grabsky in 2019, this excellent documentary examines Pablo Picasso’s early years: his upbringing and the learning process that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from those early years. The film explains how the young artist learned his trade and examines two key moments: the blue and the pink periods.
In its 25th anniversary, the ‘Sitgestiu’ festival offers over 30 events and activities that mix music, opera, jazz, family workshops, film screenings, sensory experiences, wine tasting dinners as well as many guided heritage and art tours, among others – and with many events also being offered in English.
