Antoni Padrós is a singular figure of Catalan Cinema. Coming from painting, his creative freedom practiced during Franco's regime placed him on the margins of cinema. His films tie in with the American underground and European militant cinemas. The author, however, did not abandon his sniper and transgressive position once democracy was established, maintaining his independent creative proposal. From the margins of the film industry, his work has taken on a progressive role and today is recognized by museums, due to its creative ability through dialogue with the Arts. This edition aims to contribute to the discovery and recovery of the unclassifiable, experimental and vital work of Antoni Padrós. Includes the films: Alice has discovered the Napalm Bomb; Dafnis y Cloe; Pim, pam, pum, revolución; Ice Cream; ¿Qué hay para cenar querida?; Els Porcs; Swedenborg; Lock-out; Shirley Temple Story; Free; Ombres de foc; Ascensió, caiguda i repòs de Maria von Herzig; L'home precís.

Antoni Padrós, bank clerk in the morning and a filmmaker by night, is undoubtedly a key figure in the Spanish avant-garde. Coming from the pop art painting and self-training as a filmmaker - except for a brief apprenticeship in a private school Aixelà film, Padros makes his film in a completely marginal form, without any protection, often with rotating expired material, and without no second takes. After a first experiment in 8mm, Alice has Discovered the Napalm Bomb (1968), he began working regularly in 16mm, using expired film. Dafni and Cloe (1969) and Pim Pam, Pum, Revolution (1970) marked the birth of an artist poetic, abstract and without limits. Lock Out (1973) represents his first feature film shot with no sound, Orly to be followed by Shirley Tempe Story (1976), a 226 minutes of footage edited in one night. Padrós' work has been consistent, and free of dogma and fashion. An artist fascinated by the movies, Padrós hates anything that reflects the everyday mimetic, everything that brings us to easily palpable realities through explicit illustrations. Hence his images are presented as a film quest for other worlds, other realities that are targeted by the suggestion of the allusion, told with elliptical language. However, this search, this whole way of film research, is well-anchored as it confesses in the socio-political and cultural life of Spain.

Alice Has Discovered the Napalm Bomb (1969)
Daphnis and Chloe (1969)
Pim Pam Pum Revolution (1970)
Ice Cream (1970)
What's for dinner? (1972)
Els porcs (1972)
Swedenborg (1971)
William Blake felt a profound admiration for Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish philosopher between the 17th and 18th centuries. Based on his dictates Swedenborg was developed, a film shot in black and white and in 16 mm. An experimental story that examines in detail the passions, frustrations, hatreds, dependences and humiliations of the couple.
Lock-Out (1973)
The recently restored film is an allegory of political oppression under Franco, with a plot alternating between narrative sequences and dream-like moments styled after the Spanish avant garde. Padros employs a range of musical forms including opera, scores, and choreography to underscore a plot featuring a group of dropouts living in a junkyard, who try to re-integrate with "The System" as represented by a party. Anarchy and absurdism are the stylistic veils covering this harsh criticism of the Franco regime.
Shirley Temple Story (1976)
Louella Parsons notifies in her radio show that Judy Garland will finally play the leading role in The Wizard of Oz. Peeing in her toilet, Shirley Temple announces that she will look for the Wizard so that he can convince MGM's executives to give her the part. Shirley starts her journey along with Mrs Pit, Mrs Pot and Mrs Put, generals' daughters and defenders of the values of 'Order, Homeland and Family'. On their way to Oz, three anarcho-structuralists join them and try to sabotage their trip. On the road, Shirley and her friends meet other strange characters, ranging from the Witch of the East to a folk singer, who compares the Emerald Country (sic) to Spain. The Witch and the anarchists kill Pit, Pot and Put and drug Shirley before reaching Oz. Once there, the anarcho-structuralists try to explain their views to the Wizard, but are attacked and tied up by the ghosts of Pit, Pot and Put, thus putting down their revolutionary's version of History. The Wizard, exhausted, leaves the room without talking to Shirley. One of his servants tells Shirley to go home with the silent majority. Shirley, frustrated, takes her wig off and looks in the camera. The curtain falls. Judy Garland sings 'Over the rainbow'.
