UN DIA CON JOAQUÍN ORELLANA is a short film about a Guatemalan sound artist and his handmade instruments. Orellana, who first encountered synthesizers in the 60s in Mexico City, found that there was no equipment back home to continue his exploration in electronic music. Out of necessity, he constructed sonic sculptures that stand as analogues for distortions or effects produced by an electronic device. Filmed in Guatemala City by Jose Wolff.
