"In Memorium" by Lucía Alonso Santos
A video essay exploring the nature of memory in film.
In Memoriam is the memory of something that is not yet, but it will. It’s also the attempt to modulate it, before it is born. In Memoriam it’s a travel around a director’s world and through it, around the world itself. And most of all, it’s a portrait of the information era. Soon, I won’t need the product, because I already know what it is.
