Adiós Amigo! (2011)
This project involves a revision of the imaginary American native land, relocated here to the geography of Huesca (Spain), the stage for the shooting of some thirty spaghetti westerns between the 60s and 70s. A cowboy leaves behind a completely abandoned town and crosses the landscapes of so many films' landscapes in which Huesca dressed up as Texas, in not only a geographical but also a temporal movement, and that culminates in the current moment. It is about a twilight film - in this case, a crepuscular spaghetti western -, where what was has been transformed into something else; an update in the eternal topic of the search for a promised land.
