TV Documentary

One summer day of 1996, Juan Eduardo Cirlot saw in a movie the Bronwyn maiden coming out of a freshwater marsh. That image would change for ever the life and work of this poet, composer, art critic and swords collector.
Through the testimony of those who knew him personally, this documentary depicts one of the most influent and unfairly forgotten Catalan artists of the 20th century.
