Remember Your Name, Babylon
Somewhere in Spain, between the corridors of greenhouses in a plastic-covered world, grow small shantytowns, home to men and women, who have crossed the sea looking for a better life. In the heart of this Eldorado that has run out of steam, they are trying to reassemble the debris of a world that seems to be lost forever. The days pass, waiting for news of documents and work that are slow to come. The rhythm of daily gestures hooks people back into the flow of time, strangling their anger.
