Los Hijos

Espanya 61 min Documentary


The triptych begins in Guinea, in search of the oral legends and history of a people who resisted colonialism in very peculiar ways. This is followed by a hot afternoon, clammy and unsettling, spent by a family shut away in what seems to be an apartment on the outskirts of Madrid. And it ends with a couple who talk, trying to face the challenges of a complicated present with few perspectives for the future. Using an essay style and letting themselves be carried along by a productive free association of ideas, Los Hijos trace a journey thought the different ways in which the human being deals with what is built around him.
