The haiku film can be considered an original variant of a short film. Perhaps the most synthetic, because its duration is always less than one minute. It is made up of three cinematographic shots and a poem that redefines the previous sequence. It has no ambient sound or diegetic music, thus referring us to the pure signifying form. This article introduces the analytical and methodological value of this resource, in which the viewer becomes an unexpected filmmaker. The experience carried out at the UBA is proposed as a matrix of thought and at the same time a model of intervention in health and education.
