05.12.2023 — "Cathars and troubadours", 20 years ago

The history of La Rara Avis Films begins in 2003 when Ignasi Cristià, playwright and set designer, was hired to design an exhibition about the history of Occitania. The most important space in the exhibition did not contain objects, only a list of dates related to the crusade against the Cathars. What started as a design commission turned into an audiovisual installation that led to the creation of the company.

In the image, a sketch of the conceptualization of the scenic space by Ignasi Cristià.
