20 years of l'Alternativa » L'Alternativa Parallel


A house emptied of all its memories, stockbrokers at work, a business leadership conference, an old rag-and-bone man who refuses to sell his wares, the whole city as a virtual space for a real-estate trade fair. The camera explores these spaces and characters as it tries to sketch out some features of this new look to the world. And an underlying question: will we need memory in the future?
