Synopsis

Non-narrative film that shows seemingly inconsequential details of the author’s daily life that nevertheless end up reflecting deep and complex states of mind. Above the images, a woman’s voice recites some poems by Raymond Carver.

The aesthetic and political weight of the landscape is one of the characteristics of his cinema, a good part of which has been seen on the screens of D’A. He graduated from ESCAC and his career has focused mainly on editing, as well as film criticism. His films Ashes, produced by Pere Portabella, and Elephants, had their world premiere at the D’A and were selected at several international film festivals.
