Fóra (Out)

Xan Gómez Viñas, Pablo Cayuela
94' / 2012 / Spain
English subtitled

Fóra (Out) investigates the hidden stories of a place: the premises of the Psychiatric Hospital of Conxo. The filmmakers use an audio-visual technique that transforms the document into image, in order to create a sort of alternating current between the images of the institution and several voices. These multiple voices are connected to the stories lingering in the building and to the reading of literary excerpts and documentary sources with strong echoes in the present day. Here the history of Conxo which mirrors that of Compostela is unravelled into little stories that stress the need for taking a closer look at certain areas erased from the urban memory and their social meaning.
