WATCH: Solar Quadrant - Luis Lechosa


This Video Essay is another joint project of MUBI and FILMADRID International Film Festival.

Solar Quadrant reflects on the gaze of the sun in cinema. The film, in a cyclic and diagrammatic way, articulates dialogues between twenty-four authors. A montage that, like a clock, superimposes the images with the sun as its central axis.

The film was created by Luis Lechosa who works in the world of graphic design and digital animation.
