José Val del Omar

Short documentary featuring sculptures of Alonso de Berruguete and Juan de Juni in the Valladolid National Museum.

Rubén Iñiguez  Pérez review:  It is part of what is called Elemental Trilogy of Spain  by José  Val del Omar, one the greatest men of surrealistic and experimental cinema of his time. Although now his works are considered because of his subject matters and his time, he was underrated in Spain, also we have to take into account that  these kind of works were for a selected audience. Anyway the international recognition of  this work was remarkably and almost got the big award at Cannes for the best short film.
