Our take

Pere Portabella explores familiar interests and themes in this short, which documents the making of a sculpture by Juan Miró. Commissioned by the Galeria Maeght for an exhibition on the Spanish artist, Miró Forja was to be paired with Miró Tapis, each detailing a different aspect of his work.
