Acariño galaico (De barro)

Galician Caress was never finished by Val del Omar (who confessed he “couldn’t finish it because the Galicia film is purely tragic, a negative affirmation incapable of communicating”), and it opens this Elementary Tryptich of Spain, which gathers in reverse order the three pillars of his work and condenses the Spanish essence thro...

Aguaespejo granadino

The triptych is closed with Water-Mirror of Granada, which according to Amos Vogel is “an explosive, cruel, and deeply passionate piece; a silent cry that constitutes a mystical evocation of Spain’s nightmare. With echoes of Buñuel’s Land Without Bread, it manages to transmit anxiety and nameless terror. One of the masterpi...

Estampas 1932

Scenes 1932 is a collective piece that reflects the work of those Pedagogical Missions from the II Spanish Republic that for many years took culture (not out of a didactic will but more of a recreational one) to the most forgotten corners of Spain. It is undoubtedly a vital experience that became crucial for the work and thinking of Val del Omar, w...

Fuego en Castilla

Tactilevision gives life to the sculpted saints by Juan de Juni and Berruguete, which burn to the rhythm bailaor Vicente Escudero echoes on the retables of the Valladolid Museum of Religious Sculpture. It’s a figuration of the “horror moor,” a delirium that leads to an awaited mystical ecstasy through the grace of mechanics.

Ojalá Val del Omar

Ojalá Val del Omar is a film that seems to understand that a portrait of such a figure cannot conform itself with being a documentary or a biopic. The point of view of Val del Omar’s world –he was a poet, a mystic, and an inventor– is so unique that we can’t but question about the way to tell his story. This collage i...

Tira tu reloj al agua (Variaciones sobre una cinegrafía intuida de José Val del Omar)

A free approach to the missing link with which the filmmaker from Granada expected to end his work, made up by what he would describe as lyrical documentaries, cinegraphies or elementaries. The elementary is a categorically poetic declination of documentary film. After the elementaries on water, fire and earth that make up the Elementary Triptych o...
