A Tale For Río narrates 75-year-old César's struggle to preserve the memory of his hometown, now disappeared after being submerged under the La Baells Reservoir, located in the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees. Drawing from César's story, a visual dialogue with my father is put forward, trying to decipher what his issue with his hometown is, given that he no longer feels attached to his own roots. The dialogue with César will allow for another discourse to be developed, one that speaks of that which is imagined. How can one record an imaginary place?
