Who was Eduardo Jimeno?

Eduardo Jimeno Correas was a Spanish filmmaker and producer. He is considered one of the pioneers in Spanish cinema.

In 1896 he acquired with his father, Eduardo Jimeno Peromarta, a Lumière camera in Lyon, which he later used to film the Fiestas del Pilar that same year. He fixed his camera on a balcony near the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar in Zaragoza and recorded "natural scenes" of the events on the 11th and the 19th of October. From these recordings, he edited two short documentary films: Salida de la misa de doce de la Iglesia del Pilar de Zaragoza and Saludos.

Salida de la misa de doce de la Iglesia del Pilar de Zaragoza's film tape had a length of 12.4m, consisted of 651 stills and has a duration of less than a minute.

Both short films, Salida de la misa de doce de la Iglesia del Pilar de Zaragoza and Saludos, were restored in 1994 and sold at auction in 2004 to a person linked to the Institut Lumière for 129.000 euros.
