The Stone

Nayra Sanz Fuentes is Co-producer of The Stone.

Synopsis

A man is sculpting stone with a sledgehammer. Víctor Moreno records this silent Sisyphean undertaking in a series of closed and open frames in consonance with the surroundings. A meditation on the action of another time in the era of modern technology and its unbearable lightness of being.
