Contar a destiempo

The minutes of this video go by as bothersome as summer flies counting in reverse bits of these stagnant lives. Because if for some people life goes along like a river, others drag it with them like sand, trying to inhabit the extremely long wait of frozen time. Time gaps pile up on the desert of dust while an attempt is made to conceal the fact that nothing changes; nothing changes; nothing changes.

Video made in the Saharawi refugee camps in Algeria with a Generation 2009 project grant..
