Collection: Jordi Bails i Castelló. Shooting date: between 1930 and 1960
When we visit old markets, it is not uncommon to find, among all kinds of old objects, coils of cinema. Some are copies in 9.5mm format of professional movies, American comedies or adventures, which were made so that the public could enjoy the cinema at home, projecting them with the simple Pathé Baby device. But many others are family filming. In boxes, sometimes there are signs that tell us what motive were filmed: baptisms, weddings, parties, excursions ... but we do not know who the author was, what are those who appear on the screen and, above all, what circumstances have led to their abandonment.
They are orphaned films, lost. Luckily, there are people of great sensitivity and esteem of the cinema that acquires these coils to avoid that they disappear and they transfer the images in new formats that allow them to see them again. One of these people is Jordi Bails, a lover of cinema and, especially, of this format 9.5mm. Thanks to its recovery task, many movies have been saved. Gently forwarded and made available to the young students of the institute, we will see how they reuse those old images and offer us a new vision.
