Around a small table, in an intimate salon setting, a powerful sequence of close-up sensory experiences invoke old memories and invent new ones. Through this miscellany of sights and sounds, objects and photos, the fascinating story of Spain in the latter half of the twentieth century unfolds, exploring memory and identity. Like a medium at a séance, Bobés deals out history and brings it to life, manipulating both past and future.
