So far, so documentary: Ignacio Ceroi goes to visit his girlfriend in France in 2019 and decides to film his experiences, buying a digital camera second hand. Yet the previous owner’s footage is still on the camera and erasing it feels odd. He contacts the owner, an older French man named Charles, and asks him about the images, whereupon a story unfolds... Ceroi narrates everything in voiceover and his “I” comes to merge with the “I” of Charles, his summer with his girlfriend gliding into memories of dogs in a river, marital frustrations, the airport in Yaoundé, the dirt roads of the rebel-held jungle. What really happened and what is invention? Summer is a time of imagination. (JL)
