Obaba

Obaba

Spanien / Deutschland 2004/2005, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Young Lurdes takes on a trip to the Pyrenean Obaba territories, all along the ‘87 curves′, to the place full of riddles and mysteries. With her video camera she sets out to capture Obaba′s reality and its people, but she will find much more, maybe her inner self and meaning. In Merche, Ismael, Tomás or Miguel she finds friends but she sees also that they seem trapped in a past they cannot escape. Gradually, she learns about them diving into their childhood and brings about the common threads that link them together. But as Lurdes tries to solve the puzzle, there is always something missing, something that escapes that neither she nor her video camera can hold or explain, like the mysterious behavior of the lizards that live there...
