GIFF honors the career of a great American actor
Always willing to challenge the limits of acting, the archaic and the modern unite fearlessly in one of Hollywood’s latest eccentrics. Nicolas Cage’s acting style has earned him complimentary descriptions such as “the American acting jazz player,” “troubadour,” and “poet.” Committed to re-evaluating the possibilities of his trade, Cage is aware of the spirituality that’s been present in acting since ancient times.
His career has already spanned 100 titles. In films such as Vampire’s Kiss, Birdy, Moonstruck, Leaving Las Vegas, Wild At Heart, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and Face-Off, our honoree boasts an ability to defy conventions and deliver performances that endure in our memory for their intensity and range.
His style, which he has described as “expressionism,” “new shamanism,” “mega-acting,” and “western kabuki,” defies conventions and unreservedly takes on the ancient duty of expressing collective imagination through creation and representation.
The Guanajuato International Film Festival is honored to pay tribute to Nicolas Cage, an eternally-captivating artist, unmistakable bulwark of creative freedom that, both in his life and his career, proves to be able to do exactly what he wants without perishing in the attempt, which has earned him a place in everyone’s memory as one of the most interesting actors of the last few decades.
Meet us at 8:00 pm at the Main Garden in San Miguel de Allende. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of the most prominent artists of contemporary cinema in person.
