Since late June this year, Arxiu del So i de la Imatge de Mallorca (ASIM) present almost 100 films from their extensive collections documenting the history and intra-history, heritage and ethnography of the island. Among others, they make amateur films by Bartomeu Morlà, Josep Cabrinetti and Nicolau Tous searchable on EFG that perfectly illustrate the Mallorca of the 1930s. In addition, the films of the Foment del Turisme de Mallorca show the development of tourism on the island from the 1960s to the 1970s. On the other hand, the extensive documentary work of Gabriel Mayans gives viewers an account of rural Mallorca that maintains its customs, but sees its environment threatened by the development of the new times.
