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?


Mercedes Álvarez won unanimous critical acclaim for her first feature film, El cielo gira (2005), along with a string of awards at international festivals, including the Rotterdam Film Festival (Tiger Award), Cinéma du Réel in Paris (Grand Prix), Infinity Festival in Alba, Italy, and BAFICI (Audience Award, Best Film and FIPRESCI).
