One hundred and twenty years later Fernando Franco has returned to these foundational images of cinema and has digitalized, pixelated and mutated them to make a noise, visual and audible, which changes the original warmth of the handmade things by the icy style of the numerical digital device.
Around 1889 or 1890, the factory of Thomas Edison conducted a camera test that has remained as the oldest of which are known to date. In this film, which is called MonkeyShine nº1, a ghostly figure makes a series of gestures with the aim, fulfilled, they are recorded by the filming machine. One hundred and twenty years later Fernando Franco has returned to these foundational images of cinema and has digitalized, pixelated and mutated them to make a noise, visual and audible, which changes the original warmth of the handmade things by the icy style of the numerical digital device. It is, indeed, a historical and cinematic resume of an audiovisual century on 36 beautiful seconds. And will be the header of this year's Punto de Vista edition.

Fernando Franco worked for a decade as editor for feature films. Since then he has published more than fifteen titles. In 2007 he started making his own projects as director, having made five short films to date, three fiction and two pieces of found-footage. In the educational field, is the head of the special editing in the Escuela de Cine y Audiovisual de la Comunidad de Madrid (ECAM) and teaches occasionally at the EICTV of San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. His latest works, Les Variations Dielman and Room, both of 2010, have been screened at festivals such as Gijón, FIDMarseille or Zinebi, among others. In 2010 he participated in the first edition of Punto de Vista’s X Films Projects.
