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

“A young Spaniard outside of every system, of every clique, of every influence, records on 16mm (since cinema for him cannot be just a profession) the quiet heartbreaking delusions that express, better than if he had prepared indict- ments, the state of mind of a generation for whom poetry today is the only refuge and the only feasible fight...”
-Jean-André Fieschi, Cahiers du Cinéma, 1964
