About the film

The docufiction intertwines the history of Argentina and Spain by bringing the forgotten Cuarteto Aguilar, a part of Aguilar's family legacy, back to the cultural spotlight. It narrates the truths postponed in the transition from the Republic to the dictatorship, offering the audience a family tale full of historical truths. 

“A documentary about the Aguilar Quartet unique in its form and content. Past and present blended into one.” Luna Frax, 22FICLPGC programmer

The film adopts a surrealist tone and approaches a tense period of Spanish history with freshness, light-heartedness and even humor. From the other side of the Atlantic, Aguilar admits that “indeed, my intention when narrating the story of part of my family had that sort of humorous approach. Something of plebeian or even South American. You look at the story with the feeling that you have to do something different, but at the same time you have to offer it to the audience from an enjoyable place so they can go to the theater and have a good time.” (Source: 22nd Las Palmas International Film Festival)
