Photographic Memory/Memoria Fotográfica


Pablo is the son of Oscar, a renowned Argentinian photographer who has lost enthusiasm for his profession. Oscar says that he has lost the ability to “see”. Alarmed, Pablo will attempt to give back the passion to his father. He will try all sorts of solutions, even esoteric ones; A trip to the places where his father took his most emblematic photos, and the reconstruction of a pregnant family memory, the earthquake of the province of San Juan in 1944. In that absurd retrospective Oscar will be reunited with his lost creativity, and with the fundamental element to have a future, or to finish a film: memory.
