The complex vital trajectory of Jaime de Mayora, the filmmaker from San Sebastian, and the only two films he manages to make during the complex historical period that goes from the end of the Second World War to the beginning of the nineteen-fifties certifies the content of the following pages. These are pages that were born guided by the purpose of recovering a really singular character from oblivion. This character's cinematographic work, the same as his life, is an interesting reflection of the historical, political and social context in which, as we will see, they try to delve not without much difficulty. His first film, El sótano (1949 - The cellar) is, for various reasons, one of the strangest and counter-current productions in the Spanish cinema of the nineteen-forties. The second, Noche de tormenta (1951 - Stormy Night), even though it lacks the daring of his former film, does at least contain a marked political premeditation that converts it into an interesting, if somewhat ambiguous, film that acts as a loudspeaker for Franquist slogans.
