This documentary, inscribed in abstract films or visual music, features geometrical figures that reproduce the rhythms of what goes on in a day. It is an effective and original update of the avant-garde film models of the 1920s.
Domènec Jiménez, born in Barcelona, was one of the pioneers of Spanish amateur film. With Delmiro De Caralt and Josep Maria Galceran, he set up the “itinerant trio” (in Spanish, “trio de los bolos”): they travelled across Catalonia to show their films. Giménez was a poet, draftsman, designer, and photographer. He developed the Kolora photo camera and ran a 9.5mm and 16mm film developing lab on the underground level at Plaça de Catalunya. In addition, he wrote film reviews and essays on the theory of film, and was editor of the quarterly Cinema Amateur.
