Antoni Miralda

Miserere

In Miserere by Miralda and Rossell, pathos and comedy are closely linked to one another. The liturgical songs that they use for long stretches of this short film refer to human suffering and repentance, while the images counter this by referring to industrial animal breeding and lab experiments. The Franco dictatorship in Spain is contrasted with a subversive/surreal series of images using video footage.
