65 O.M.

Date produced: 1936

Filmmaker(s):

Fernando de Marzi

Description:

"Oltre a questi ve ne sono altri che apparirebbero soggetto ma la trama è così tenue e poco chiara che noi non esitiamo a porli fra i documentari (La prora incatenata; Zoo; Cacciatori delle Alpi o 65 O.M.)"—Cinegiornale, 1936

Filmmaker(s):

L. Blackman

C. G. Jowett

S. Redman

Description:

"Almost every day of the year some 10 trawlers set out from the twin ports of Grimby and Hull, England, for the Arctic fishing grounds to return three weeks later with their cargo of deep sea fish. This film is a record of one such voyage with sound effects recorded on location. This will generate a nostalgic effervescence for those lovers of deep sea fishing and all will wish to join in the adventure without having to share in the work and inconvenience. The film moves with interest and excitement, a treat for all" PSA Journal, Oct. 1961, 47.

A partir de cero [From zero]

Date produced: 1971

Filmmaker(s):

Carlos Belaunzarán

Description:

"Narró en la cinta la reflexión existencial de un personaje que piensa sobre la relación entre los ideales genuinos y la realidad que lo rodea. En ella el tema político ocupaba un marco sutil pero presente. El título sugiere el regreso a un lugar donde el pensamiento comience de nuevo, sin supuestos previos. En la cinta de Belaunzarán aparecen mezclados varios elementos que perturban la reflexión del personaje: la propaganda política, Telesistema Mexicano, las imágenes sobre Vietnam, Biafra, Tlatelolco" (Vázquez Mantecón, 2012).

"The film was about the existential reflection of a character that thinks about the relationship between genuine ideals and the reality surrounding him. In it the political theme was a subtle framework, but it was present. The title suggests coming back to a place where thought begins again, without previous assumptions. In Belaunzarán's film there are several elements that disturb the reflection of the character: political propaganda, the Mexican Telesystem, images of Vietnam, Biafra, Tlatelolco" (Vázquez Mantecón, 2012).

This was called 'A Quickie' and was marked by some unusual amateur acting by Helen Johnson. The photography of Mario D'Giovanni, 45 Garmine Street, New York, was admirable too. 'A Quickie' was shot with a Bell and Howell on 35 milimeter film and was made chiefly on Staten Island." Photoplay, Nov. 1929, 86.
