Docemasuno film on white background

New Low-ISO Black and White Film from Argenti – Docemasuno

Argenti Film has released a new black and white film called Docemasuno with a box speed of ISO 13. The name of the film was inspired by what Argenti says is a Spanish form of superstition where many avoid saying the number thirteen as Docemasuno translates to “twelve-plus-one”.

But what do superstitions have to do with film?

Argenti says, ‘The film was inspired in this very Spanish form of superstition, but also the superstition to shoot “technical” or “slow” films by many photographers. In fact, we believe that shooting slow films really puts you in the mood and requires you to think through your shots, and in general is a lot of fun, especially for long summer days.’
