SINCE THE WORLD WAS WORLD

Director’s statement:

I met Gonzalo, a farmer in a village in Burgos, at the exhumation of a mass grave from the Spanish civil war. I realised immediately that he was no ordinary man and we have since then continued to maintain a very close friendship from which I have learned much about his sage, crystal-clear vision of the world, with its abundant common sense.  Gonzalo and his family demonstrate that it is possible to live between the past and the future, retaining what is useful and adopting what the new has to give, and shows that it is not necessary to life in the metropolis to broaden our horizons.
