synopsis

One day, as if by chance during a shoot in the Río de la Plata Delta, we met Robert Barreira, the son of a Catalan émigré from the Spanish Civil War. When we told him that we were from Barcelona, the man was moved to tears and began to speak in a stammering Catalan that he had not spoken since his mother's death. For, everything in the infinity of islands is engulfed by the forest that inhabits them.

The only thing we still have from that encounter is that moment and a photo.
This is the story of the son of two immigrants who knows an imaginary Catalonia bequeathed to him by his mother through her stories. A Catalonia that may no longer exist. We will set off in search of it.
