Imitation of the Angel

La imitación del ángel

Directed by Adolfo Arrieta
Spain, 1966
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Making use of a high-contrast b&w, evoking the spirit of amateur cinema, and punctuated with fleeting, abrupt movement, the film sets up an unexpected counterpoint between an everyday world given over to idleness, and a hallucinatory other-world, complicit in crime and conspiracy.
