Year1934 Duration16 min. DirectorDelmiro de Caralt
A man wearing dark clothes and a sad countenance tries to commit suicide in a variety of ways but fails in all ridiculous attempts. This film, resembling the mildest surrealist movies of the 1920s, might look naïve today. However, it oozes a powerful passion for life.

Delmiro de Caralt

Delmiro De Caralt (Barcelona, 1901-1990) was the man who introduced amateur film in Spain in the 1920s. In 1924, he established the Film Library, now named after him. A staunch advocate of independent and experimental films, De Caralt was always thinking of solutions for the technical problems of filmmaking. Also, he was one of the leading figures of the early avant-garde in Spain.
