There are many images in The Monument Hunter –thousands and thousands from everywhere in the world– but only one can sum it up perfectly: it’s the image of a sculpture, placed in front of the Neurosurgery Institute in Santiago de Chile, that features a human brain floating on the air and proudly guarded by two delicate hands. In a similar way, Jerónimo Rodríguez’s debut film sets itself to create a representation of the human computer, yet focusing on the software rather than the hardware. The story of a search to compose a parallel and ineffable story about personal memory and the passage of time. Spanish première
