David Domingo (aka Stanley Sunday)

(Valencia, 1973)


David Domingo, also known as Stanley Sunday or Davidson, was born in Valencia in 1973 and currently lives in Barcelona. Thanks to some 20 shorts, three features (including his personal vision of Disney’s Bambi and The Exorcist turned into a musical), numerous video clips for musicians on the independent scene (Fangoria, Hidrogenesse, Doble Pletina, Javiera Mena), wild live performances during screenings of his Super 8 and 16 mm films, and his mythical five-yearly fanzine “Un día en la vida de Jonas Mekas”, he has become an outstanding figure in Spanish underground film.

As well as making their way round the underground circuit, his films have been shown at some of the foremost museums, arts centres and festivals in Spain, such as Xcèntric (CCCB) and Centre d’Art Santa Monica in Barcelona, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo and La Casa Encendida in Madrid, the Centro Galego de Artes da Imaxe and the S(8) Peripheral Film Festival in Coruña, the Sitges Film Festival and Cinema Jove de Valencia.

His first short, Súper 8 (1996), was chosen to form part of the travelling cycle “From Ecstasy to Rapture. 50 Years of Alternative Spanish Film”, organized by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, and was shown at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne), Anthology Film Archives (New York), the National Gallery of Art (Washington DC), Tiff Cinematheque (Toronto), Pacific Cinematheque (Vancouver), the National Film Archive in Prague, the Jeu de Paume (Paris) and the Tate Modern (London), to name just a few venues. It now forms part of the Xcèntric Archive collection.
