This documentary short film talks about the value of the image and its preservation as a historical, personal and collective document. My father documented the history of our family and tried to photograph everything until he died from covid-19 in February 2021. His motto was: “we are what our memory allows us to remember”. This work is a small tribute to his life, although this could be the story of any person in the world.
