LOS PEREGRINOS (NOTAS Y FRAGMENTOS DEL VIAJE)

Maria Riera Peris

Spain 24 min World premiere Documentary

Synopsis

A pair of wandering, young eyes traveling through Spain from the point of view of a train cabin. A reflective diary where the railway poetics and changing landscapes form a contemplative whole. A piece that, from the physical transit, tries to identify what could be understood in another sphere as the journey of life itself.
