Synopsis:
A world that is being covered with plastic. The area of Nijar, in Andalusia, has experienced a tremendous development within a generation, from premodernity to consumerism. Plastic hothouses, invernaderos, have progressively been invading it, and cover the earth. The impact on the environment is disastrous. But it is also affecting culture: people forget the past, and souls are covered with plastic as well. Memory is sacrificed on the altar of productivity. The film is at once a documentary and a cycle of songs, a filmed oratorio composed and interpreted in situ by Veronika Harcsa, the singer, and Albert Markos, a violoncellist. It tries to reconquer memory while questioning its own images.
