Pablo G. del Amo, editor of dreams
In general, cinematographic editing is the work of occult men that remain outside of the social glamour which usually accompanies the work of cinema professionals. By explicitly avoiding the characteristics of a users manual or theoretical "corpus", this book informs about the process of editing via the life and work of Pablo González del Amo - maybe the most prestigious editor in the Spanish cinema. His personal and professional career is marked by an ethic commitment that determines - with admirable coherence - his biography as well as his filmography. The precious contribution of 25 testimonies from cineastes and friends complete an ample documentary which also includes the subjective valuation. Preceding all these is an ingenious portrait - in form of a prologue - by the writer Manuel Vicent.
