It was 1994 and I was 13 years old. Her name was María and she was clerk in my video store. We knew little or nothing about each other. One day I went to return some tapes I found her doing something strange and I got scared. I left running. Next day I passed by but she was gone. I didn’t know anything else about María until, years later, I knew that she had disappeared, just the same year I had last seen her. “The Magnetic Fields” tries to reconstruct the routines and swings of this girl, doing so out of memories, speculations and half-truths. It’s an intimate, unstable film, full of holes and dead times. And it’s built from fragments, ideas and motifs that unfold slowly towards a drift.
