Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Crec que la primera pel·lícula no infantil que vaig anar a veure al cinema fou "Encontres a la Tercera Fase", quan jo deuria tenir uns 8 anys. Buf, quins records... Evidentment la imatge del creuer de la Sagrada Família va despertar en el meu cervell una connexió immediata amb l'escena final de la pel·lícula, quan la nau alienigena contacta amb els humans. Aquí teniu l'escena en qüestió:


La Sagrada Família per fí té un interior acabat: és una meravella, el fruit del geni únic d'Antoni Gaudí. Falten les paraules per descriure-ho.




Close Encounters, by Steven Spielberg was my first movie experience in the big screen of a cinema. I was more or less 8 years old, and was, wow, such a magical experience. So, when I saw the completed vault that Gaudí designed for the Sagrada Família basilica in Barcelona, just completed on the inside last year, my brain made the conection. That's a close encounter with art. Ah, and the scene in question is this one:


The catalan basilica of La Sagrada Família (The Holy Family) is THE global icon of Barcelona. After more than a century building it, in 2011 the interior was finished and consecrated by the pope Benedict XVI. It's an incredible structure, fruit of the unique mind of Antoni Gaudí. The ceilings look like a spaceship, and the nave and columns, like a palmtree forest. Work began in 1882 and should be completed in 2026, like the medieval cathedrals of old.
