Cada ver es… (1981)


If we split the Spanish word “cadáveres” (corpses) in three parts, we obtain another three different words: “Cada-ver-es”, that can be roughly translated in English as “Every-sight-is”. This experimental documentary follows the life and work of Juan Espada, the man in charge at the morgue of the Medicine Faculty in València, Spain, and deals with our visual taboos, the ones that we evade to watch: madness, solitude, death,… and several more that get portraited during its shocking footage. Shot on 16mm with a budget so low that the filmmaker had to sell his camera to finish post-production.

Director: Ángel García del Val.
Writers: Ángel Beltrán, Ángel García del Val.
Cinematographers: Ángel Beltrán, Ángel García del Val.

Many thanks to zeiss @TIK for the DVD which I made this rip from and for the English subtitles, I improved formatting and timings a bit, they are not perfect but they are acceptable.
