The film was comissioned by the Galeria Maeght to commemorate Joan Miró’s exhibit organized by the French Ministry of Cultural Affairs at the Grand Palais in Paris that opened on May 17, 1974. It took five days to shoot the film and it shows the smelting and casting process of the work known as Puertas Mallorquinas by Joan Miró. The filming team travelled to the foundry owned by the Parellada family in Llinars de Munt. The bronze sculptures weigh 1.200, 800 and 650 kilos respectively and were cast in one piece in a kiln specially constructed for the occasion.
