“The movie theater is dark, a light from the past projects onto a screen: someone is looking for something. The Present of Yesterday fosters a dialogue between contemporary aesthetics of documentary and fiction. Contemporary filmmakers seek to understand the present through narratives made of collective histories and personal memories. Our room is dark, we turn on our screens: we are all looking for something. “ Rodrigo del Rio and Ignacio Azcueta, curators of the series.
