In a bar in Cartagena, time unravels among the conversations of the patrons, in the sounds from the radio, and the images shown on TV. In his second feature film, Spanish filmmaker López Carrasco (El Futuro, Olhar ’14) explores the recent history of his country, starting with the year 1992: while the Seville Exhibition and the Olympic Games were celebrated in Barcelona, an uprising of workers against industrial restructuring takes over the Carthaginian streets. Amidst the saturation of the visible and noises evading the boundaries of the frame and memory, the film digs spaces to exhume collective traumas. (C. M)
