In a 25 years-old home video, a kid insistently asks his dad if he can play with the camera. Once an adult, he returns to that place to reflect on how all those years that passed have affected a place where time seems to have come to a halt. The cycle of life as seen by its protagonist and spectator.

Every film has (or should have) a trigger. After some time living away from his homeland, Víctor Hugo Seoane returns home and receives from his father a VHS containing several years of his family life recorded. Sort of an oral transmission from father to son, that precise moment sets off a film with a clear sensual drive in which the sound of dialogues, the smell of incense in a church, or the hands of a person cooking carry an unexpected importance. Through his own family, the faces of the elderly, the celebrations and rituals they engage in year every year, Seoane’s Verengo manages to reconstruct (maybe invent is a better term) a world in which one can take shelter from the relentless passage of time.
