This DVD includes three of Adolpho Arrietta's surrealist works shot in Madrid and Paris in the late 1960's.

“An angel watches over the boy. This angel with these wings, that Méliès could have invented, will never leave Arrietta’s films. As if it had become his guardian angel, watching over his preserved childhood, a smile haunting his cruelest films...”
-Emile Breton

-Jean-André Fieschi, Cahiers du Cinéma, 1964
