Of Memory and Debris

submitted by Huzzaz on 11/29/21 1

Of Memory and Debris is a personal portrait of the director’s grandfather (Opa, 94) and his wife's grandfather (Ababo, 81) who stayed back in Venezuela after most of their family emigrated due to the economic crisis and violence in the country. Opa lives with his wife Oma, who has been suffering from Alzheimer's for the past ten years, as he tries to comfort her in her final days. Everyday Ababo scrapes the sewers of his abandoned gold processing factory to accumulate gold remnants and afford a trip to Canada. His goal is to attend his granddaughter’s wedding. An intimate character diptych, OF MEMORY AND DEBRIS tells the story of an unseen generation — the grandparents left behind by the largest exodus in Latin America's recent history.
