Jorge Herralde: anagram of an editor

Project Description




It is a documentary that thoroughly explores the life and career of Jorge Herralde, the founder of Anagrama publishing house, based on his testimony and many people who have accompanied him in the different stages of his life.

With access to unpublished material from his personal archive, the documentary discovers little-known aspects of Herralde, such as his familiar environment in the industrial bourgeoisie of Barcelona or his past as a racing horse rider. The cameras have accompanied Herralde in very personal moments, such as the morning massages at his home, which he transforms into literary gatherings; daily scenes with his wife and collaborator, Lali Gubern; his travels to Latin America;meals with authors; or daily offices with his secretary and editorial staff. You can also see images of his cameos and interventions in some films shot by the Barcelona School, a movement in which he also participated as a producer.
