    • Synopsis
    • Raymond Roussel: Le Jour de Gloire explores the figure of Raymond Roussel (1877-1933), French writer and playwright, is one of the most enigmatic and inspiring in the world of art and literature figures.

      A documentary on Raymond Roussel, who inspired the surrealist group, Marcel Proust and countless novelists and artists of today, from Enrique Vila-Matas and Miquel Barceló to Jan Svankmajer. Taking as our point of departure the film ''Impressions de la Haute Mongolie'' (1976), which Salvador Dalí and his director José Montes-Baquer dedicated to Roussel, different specialists including Michel Butor uncover the figure of this writer and poet on a journey through literature, music and the visual arts, taking us from Barcelona to Mallorca, Madrid, Germany, France, Italy, Austria and the US. And from the microscopic ink-impregnated images to the most singular portrait of the human soul.
      With the participation of: Michel Butor, Enrique Vila-Matas, Jan Svankmajer, Alejandro Jodorowsky, John Ashbery, Miquel Barceló, Jean-Jacques Pauvert, Lillian Schwartz o Jean-Christophe Averty among others.
