      Joan Miro @ Tate Modern

      The film explores Joan Miró's life and working practice, beginning at his family's farm in Montroig, Catalonia, a sanctuary for him throughout his life and the source of much of his artistic inspiration. Guided by Miró's grandson and the curators from Tate Modern, the film visits his complex of studios and workshops overlooking the sea near Palma, Mallorca, where he moved after the Second World War and where he worked prolifically until his death at the age of 93. It includes rare material from films by Pere Portabella and Català Roca of Miró at work, and testimonials from friends who remember him as a remarkably generous and humble man.

      The film was made to accompany the exhibition 'Joan Miró, The Ladder of Escape' at Tate Modern. 14 April - 11 September
