Acció Santos

Acció Santos
Pere Portabella
1973
12 minutes

Acció Santos is one of Portabella’s characteristic conceptual art shorts immersed in the self-analysis of the artistic languages of the sixties. The film is divided into two large segments. The first is made up of a couple of still shots of the pianist, Carles Santos, playing 12 Etudes, Op. 25 – No. 7 in C Sharp Minor by Frederick Chopin. The second segment shows him listening to his own recording from a music player until he dons the headphones, therefore letting silence take over the film and consequently also over the audience in the movie theatre. The length of the silent shot is the same length as the prelude.
