Synopsis

During the 1980s, a convent in Lizaso (Navarra) was home to the eccentric Arco Iris (rainbow) community. The bland walls of the building were decorated with huge floral motifs and its rooms hosted large gatherings where people experimented with New Age-style cathartic practices. Today, the building is home to a closed community of monks and the traces of that period are barely visible. The authors of San Simón 62 go there following the testimonies of their mothers who spent time in the Arco Iris community, as they sought to shake off the aftermath of Franco's regime and face the personal and political challenges of this new era.
