A new piece in the work of a filmmaker on the rise, focused on revealing the threads and scenarios behind contemporary technological transformations. Agrilogistics records these changes within industrial agriculture. Tulip bulbs, chrysanthemum cuttings or tomato crops are processed by cameras and algorithms that regulate their growth. By day, the greenhouse becomes a kinematic device, an automated set for the mass production of flowers and vegetables. By night, the factory stops: the outside and the inside merge into a dreamlike space where plants, animals and machines form a new eco-technological web, captured in all its cold magic by Ortín's visual talent.
