Valladolid (SPAIN)


SPAIN / 2021 / 8 min
Álvaro Martín Sanz


The narrator’s grandfather left behind 8mm films which included images of the Aqueduct of Secovia in Spain. Her parents, she discovers, in later years also took pictures of the same ruins. Those images trigger an association with the Aqueduct Park in Rome, the filmmaker’s current residence, and the idea of a landscape that will remain unchanged for the next hundred years. By contemplating on the act of mechanical documentation—just recording whatever appears in front of one’s eyes—and lost memories (images) of a family, the filmmaker questions the meaning of filming and raises the theme of what human activity is about.
