Hostal España

Nuevo proyecto experimental que propone trabajar con una comunidad de personas mayores que residen en un céntrico hostal en la ciudad de León, con parte de las cuales se plantea generar un grupo que reflexione, a través del audiovisual y a partir de su cotidianeidad, sobre cuestiones básicas que afectan a la llamada tercera edad: entorno social, salud, participación, autonomía, vulnerabilidad, limitaciones específicas en el entorno rural, etc. Como ha escrito Sharon R. Kaufman “solo conociendo primero cómo los mayores se ven a sí mismos, sus vidas y la naturaleza de la tercera edad, podemos esperar dar forma a un significativo presente y futuro para ellos y para los que les sigan”.

The project has been proposed as a collective work through local groups, in which the last images of the mine are intermingled with the conversations held among women miners throughout the period 2016-2017. In the resulting film layers of complexity are added to an epic reading about class struggle, while aspects such as care work or affective components, usually relegated in the conventional story about the mine, are put in value.
