Quines flors es porten a una fossa?

Elena Gilda

Quines flors es porten a una fossa? [What flowers do we bring to a mass grave?] is an audiovisual piece halfway between documentary and experimental essay that starts by questioning the family story about the death of Joaquima Hernandez Oliver, the author's great-grandmother, where the only information she had about her was that she had died of insanity during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).

Through archival images and filmed images, a journey is made through names, dates and silences to the present where these genealogies are common in the collective imagination and family histories, leaving the door open to those near futures, difficult to imagine, but easier to understand.
Due to the characteristics of the research and the context, a binary language is used.
