Abstract:

Segundo de Chomn is the Spanish film-maker from the silent era with a wider international dimension. But the study about him needs a permanent reformulation. First of all, due to the shortage of data about the specific moves in his career in the framework of cinema in its early years. Secondly, due to the harmful nature of some clichs told about him (pioneer of Spanish cinema, the Spanish Mlis). This paper offers a starting point for a revision of Chomn's work, from theoretical considerations and particular films, including Le Vie et passion de N.S. Jess Christ, Le fils du diable, Le courant lectrique or Symphonie bizarre.

Keywords: Chomn; Spanish cinema; cinema of attractions; early cinema
