El mundo era tan reciente, que muchas cosas no tenían nombre, y para mencionarlas había que apuntarlas con el dedo.

The title quotes 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, wherein he builds a fictional town from a narrative. In a cinematic approach, while walking all over the city with no place to go, I create a landscape that is not really a place but a state of mind that allows you to see as you want to see it.
Using images that depict unnoticeable and forgotten elements that compose a city, I shoot a complete sequence in a film strip fragmenting it into frames where fantasy and realism meet the cinematic. By mixing abstract, documentary and landscape images, I create a still film where movement is perceived by the audience as they walk through the sequence.
What a strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need to do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.
*The world was so recent, that many things had no name, and to mention them you had to point them out with your finger.
