About

The fifth edition of the Tank Festival in the Canary Islands, dedicates an event to the work and memory of the artist César Manrique. The event will consist of screening the documentary `Taro, el eco de Manrique´ (58 minutes, Miguel G. Morales), a feature film that brings us closer to the person and to the message in defense of the ecology of this Spanish artist, born in Lanzarote. It will do so through his own voice, with his reflections, actions or projects. His involvement, his activism, his confrontation with the authorities and with real estate developers and his commitment to the cultural and landscape values of the island of Lanzarote made him a symbol, adding a socio- political dimension to his creative personality. The screening will be accompanied by a dialogue between the filmmaker Miguel G. Morales and the architect Fernando Menis. The evening will end with `Blues for Gilbert ́a performance of the dancer Paloma Hurtado and the musician Juan Javier Rodríguez. Tank Festival 2019 is organized by the non profit Asociación Amigos del Espacio Cultural El Tanque and is supported by Canarias Cultura en Red - Gobierno de Canarias, Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte de España, Cabildo de Tenerife, Fundación CajaCanarias and Fundación La Caixa; and, in the case of this event, it is supported by the non profit Fundación César Manrique and Hatching Festival
