Brothers Manuel and Ángel Fernández were celebrating Christmas Eve dinner in the family home of Escoréu (Pravia) on 24 November 1937 when a known Falangist in the town knocked on the door, gun in hand, and told them they had to go with him to testify. Outside the house expected other Falangists in a van. The two brothers were killed a mile away from home. Eighty years later, a group of volunteers are looking for their remains. These searching works connect two eras while showing how the landscape hides a reality that shapes our collective present.
