Two dinosaurs gore a cabbage, an index finger dances on a windowpane, another drowns in a glass of water... The multiple possibilities of expression using the fingers add up to a semantic infinity that Frederic Amat explored with the puppet actress  Teresa Calafell in a short film made between 2000 and 2004. A few years earlier, Marcel Broodthaers, passionate about language games, drew the silhouette of a cat chasing another and called it: The Mouse Writes Rat; while Joan Brossa gave life to the alphabet and Antoni Llena created volumes out of paper. These are small ideas for big moments.
