Pablo G. Del Amo, An Editor Of Dreams

Spain's most influential film editor is the subject of a shamelessly adoring homage from Diego Galan in "Pablo G. del Amo, an Editor of Dreams." Pic combines an overview of Spanish cinema, 1960-2000, and a general intro to the editor's art into a watchable mix that could pique niche interest in specialist and Spanish-interest sidebars.

Spain’s most influential film editor is the subject of a shamelessly adoring homage from Diego Galan, former director of the San Sebastian Film Festival, in “Pablo G. del Amo, an Editor of Dreams.” Complex, private man died at 78 during the shoot. Featuring testimony from senior Spanish helmers who were also subject’s buddies, pic combines an overview of Spanish cinema, 1960-2000, and a general intro to the editor’s art into a watchable mix that could pique niche interest in specialist and Spanish-interest sidebars.

The details of Amo’s life are briefly given: adopted communism as a young man after witnessing Civil War horrors, he was exiled in Portugal, returning to Spain in the late 1950s. A high-profile range of Portuguese and Spanish cineastes including Carlos Saura, Victor Erice and Fernando Fernan-Gomez offer a portrait of the editor as a brilliantly meticulous, passionate pro, and a politically committed if private and difficult man who once told producer Elias Querejeta, “You’re not an editor, you’re a butcher.” Example footage abounds of some of the seminal Spanish pics (“Spirit of the Beehive,” “The Hunt”) Amo crafted, though analysis by Amo is lacking.
