AMATEUR FILM UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF AVANT-GARDE
OMBRES


Country: Spain
Year: 1935
Duration: 7'
Direction: Domènec Jiménez

Sinopsis

A character has to write a film synopsis. He draws inspiration from what is around him: shadows cast in every corner in arbitrary shapes. Lulled by wandering contemplation, he falls asleep… and he dreams of the film we are watching, Ombres. This movie’s interest lies not only in the formal interplay of shadows (in vogue in the 1930s) but also, and especially, in its original self-referential structure.


Bio

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.
