At the end of 2005, I was lucky enough to get to know Jose "Pepin" Bello, the last living voice of the Generation of '27.
Intimate friend of Salvador Dalí, Luis Buñuel and Federico García Lorca among others, "Pepin" modestly, had influenced both the work and lives of tens of renowned artists. Excited by his lucidity, enormous humanity and vast memory (since he was 101 years old), I wanted to make a statement of these encounters with an improvised audiovisual recording, urgently, enlisting a small group of friends and professionals from this field.
The results could not have been better. Even so, by misfortunes of life, these images could never see the light… Until now.
