MESETA

Somewhere in inland Spain, a shepherd dreams of visiting Lake Titicaca, a retired musical duo recall their golden age, two young sisters search for pokemons without any luck and an old man counts the empty houses of the village in order to fall asleep at night.

The characters of this cartographic film tell the tale of a rural world whose ancestral culture is vanishing in time. Through a multi-dimensional gaze we move among an emotional landscape that ranges from melancholy to humour. With an observational tone and an almost surreal manner, INLAND proposes a sensorial trip through the empty territory of Spain.
