Live event to reflect on literacy and film intertextuality through the reflections of Cristina Campos and her book Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake
Novelist and scriptwriter Cristina Campos (Barcelona, 1975) is the guest author for the second edition of Vessels of communication (Rewriting and story transfer in the Hispanic World). Pan de limón con semillas de amapola [Lemon Bread with Poppy Seeds] (2016) is her first novel, a story of female friendship. Her second novel, Historias de mujeres casadas [Stories of Married Women] was the finalist of the Planeta Prize in 2022. Cristina Campos will talk about her writing process and the intertexual and intemedial references in her novels. This talk will be followed by a screening of the film Pan de limón con semillas de amapola (Benito Zambrano, 2022).
Vessels of communication (Vasos comunicantes) is a project led by Dr Carmen Herrero within the Film, Languages and Media in Education (FLAME) research group at Manchester Metropolitan University that seeks to reflect on literary, artistic and filmic intertextuality through the reflections of novelists, playwrights, poets, film and television directors, creators of comics and video games. Their voices and works will guide the exploration of the relationships between audiovisual, literary and digital culture, and illustrate the sources, influences, traditions, imaginings, processes and practices that feed the enriching metamorphosis of stories in print and on screens in the Spanish and Latin American world. The project also considers how to engage students of Spanish with these creations, in collaboration with the Film in Language Teaching Association (FILTA).
This project is produced in collaboration with Consulate General of Spain in Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Liverpool, FLAME and FILTA.
