Destello bravío

AINHOA RODRIGUEZ

Spain Ι 95′ Ι 2021

Isa uses a cassette recorder to record messages to herself, which she later plays back. “A mighty flash of light will appear above the village, which will change everything”, she hears herself say. “It is magnificent. We will all get a headache, we will lose our memories and we will disappear.” Isa hopes for change, and this is not surprising. She lives in a small community in the southwest of Spain where nothing ever happens. The young people all leave. For those who remain, time seems to stand still. Cita is not satisfied with this; her hopes are fixed on something different. She leaves her husband and roams the small town.
