  • UN EFECTO OPTICO

Alfredo and Teresa, a married couple from Burgos, decide to finally take their long-dreamed and well deserved trip to New York. Shortly after their arrival Teresa starts to feel strangely uncomfortable. Then Alfredo's pictures of momuments don't match what they remember they saw... Cavestany's is an distinctive and daring take on tourism, globalised provincialism, the banality of a steady couple's quotidianity... and much more.
