Juan Carlos Robles' artistic approach is totally alien to the narrative discipline of the documentary. The voices of young people, dance, sport, images of architecture or the presence of nature here become conceptual formalisations, allegories that seek to represent a present characterised by a multitude of inhabitants at a time of great uncertainty. The need to build personal relationships and promote forums for public encounters is at the heart of the micro-politics of this project, which reflects on the conditioning factors of life.
