This film is the first Sergi Rubió's feature film as a Director, which he began at the age of 18. He shot it on analog video over the course of 2 years, working all roles: not only as Producer-writer-Director, but also as Cinematographer, Camera Operator, Gaffer, Grip, Production Designer and Sound. Rubió made this film before beginning his film studies, when his only filmmaking experiences were the amateur films he made before that: little movies in Super 8, with his family and friends as his Cast & Crew.
In the year 2010, for the centennial of his birthday, the family members and the descendants of Josep Torrella asked for a copy of the film so as to show it publicly in the town of Sabadell, in September of that same year. By some stroke of bad luck, the first effort to open the film at the Alexandra movie theatre resulted in negative feedback as far as the sound quality was concerned and thus wasn't considered apt for public viewing. After a strong request by the Torella family to show the film in Sabadell, Rubió brought the documentary to a production house so as to do some important remixing and improvement of the soundtrack as a whole. To this day, from 1996 up until today's date, it is Sergi Rubió's sincere desire that the project be finished once and for all.
