Sobre El Sol

by José Antonio SISTIAGA
1992 / 70mm / color / silent / 1S / 2' 30

The film, painted on 70mm (IMAX format), was started in 1991 and still isn’t, to this date, completed. Faced with technological obsolescence, the loop that is presented has been obtained using an image-by-image scanning process.

Han closes a trilogy that began with Ere erera baleibu... in 1968 and continued in the early 1990s with Impressions en haute atmosphère (Impressions from the Upper Atmosphere), which goes from the microcosm of atoms (Ere Erera) to the macrocosm of cosmic galaxies. After an "informal" abstraction obtained through the projection of fine particles on a transparent film tape from which all notion of form is shunned, the artist reintroduced in his following movies simple shapes, circles and spirals, coils, reproduced according to the most traditional technique of movement decomposition (animation cinema), which "channels" Brownian motion of matter. Sistiaga is a filmmaker with a painter’s instinct, who purposefully amalgamates the matter of which we are made with pictorial matter.
