FilmINVOCATION combines several film reels that Val del Omar shot in Murcia in collaboration with other filmmakers as part of the Educational Missions. From the film’s point of view, Holy Week and the spring feast are clear ethnographic subjects, but we can nevertheless identify Val del Omar’s poetic signature, including his unusual angles, the decomposition of light into rays, and his rhythmic circular motion.
