Loosely inspired by a true story that took place in the Catalan town of Solivella (Tarragona), which was brought to the stage by Àngel Guimerà, the film describes the dark love triangle between a woman and two men who meet in a road construction job. Screening with live sound creation by Abel Hernández.
He was born in Míravet (Tarragona) in 1870 and died in 1936. He was first exposed to the world of film in 1905 as a sales representative in Barcelona for the Valencia-based production company Casa Cuesta. In 1908 he adapted, together with Fructuós Gelaber, ‘Maria Rosa’, the play by Àngel Guimerà, for Films Barcelona. Between 1911 and 1913 he directed films for Casa Cuesta such as ‘Los siete niños de Écija’, ‘El lobo de la sierra’ or ‘Amor de bestia’, among others. In 1912 he adapted again Guimerà’s work with the same actors and Gelabert as cinematographer, this time moving away from the theatrical script. Later he began a fruitful professional relationship with Condal Film, with works such as ‘Pacto de lágrimas’ or ‘El signo de la tribu’, before participating in one of the most ambitious films of the moment (‘Los misterios de Barcelona’, 1916) and culminating his career at the production company Studio Films, for which he directed between 1918 and 1919 ‘Codicia’, ‘Mefisto’ or ‘El botón de fuego’.
