Lección de arte 1962
This is a work about Spanish art alternating humour and real landscapes. Appearing in the work, among others, are the Altamira paintings, the Giralda bell tower in Seville and the Alhambra in Granada.
This is a work for children, with a highly educational slant. The main criticism was its rather dull dialogues. Many critics said that the screenplay was very poor, even if it was for children. But even so it won an award at the San Sebastian Film Festival. This was his first documentary.
