Two men measure the height of pine trees. A woman listens to what the trees say. Village children pitch tents. A cloud of digital dots reveals the forest. The pines have said we can ask. They always called that place "Paradise".

After the abandonment of the villages during the 1960s in the Arce Valley, the Government of Navarra planted pine trees in the fields that were tilled or were pasture for animals. More than 50 years later, in a village repopulated in the 80s, they have decided to cut down the pines and recover their fields. Through different data and image capture technologies, Paraíso explores a territory in transformation.

Paraíso has been screened in several festivals, such as Play-Doc; Curtocircuíto; Granada Film Fest; l'Alternativa; ZINEBI; Ibizacinefest; MICE or the International Film Festival of Las Palmas.
