Director: Fernando Domínguez Producer: Fernando Domínguez Screenplay: Fernando Domínguez Cinematographer: Natalia de la Vega Editor: Fernando Domínguez Sound: Javier Farina Music: Pablo Grinjot Principal Cast: Nicolás Rubió

Artist Nicolás Rubió begins a painting of his childhood home in France, but he cannot remember its exact dimensions. Fleeing the brutality of the Spanish Civil War, his family found refuge in this tiny village. Now from his studio in Buenos Aires, Nicolás is desperate to evoke and record his memories of that time. This visually breathtaking documentary, beyond merely being a fascinating depiction of a painter and his subject, is a profound exploration into the essence of the creative process itself.

Domínguez draws on a series of different devices to capture that search for lost time, portraying the work of a painter and his will to create a whole world out of the loneliness of one room.
