Year after year people gather in the village of Paredes de Coura, to attend one of the oldest Portuguese music festivals. The film is a snapshot of the rituals that make the festival so unique: long climbing to the village, after parties in the camping area, poetry close to the river, heading to a remote place year after year with the same group of friends, to make new ones. Who would think such a tiny corner could host totally apart generations this well?
Exploring the surroundings of the Sónar+D complex, a conference focused on creativity and technology, we found Montjuïc gardens. It seemed the perfect scenario to welcome some digital artists and have them to talk a little bit about their work and motivations. Our idea was to make a series under the motto “The Future is Now”, and it’s funny to see some of the artists don’t like to make predictions of the future. They actually do concentrate in what they can do now and how they can build a better world.
