Joan and Salvador
Joan is 85 years old and Salvador is 99. One is an activist who defends the rights of the elderly. The other is a painting enthusiast who is preparing his centenary. They share activities, despite having different life trajectories.
Elderly people are often valued for their past history, but I wanted to explore their future. I was interested in learning about their upcoming projects and capturing their emotions. In the last stretch of life, linked to dependence and death, the protagonists transmit a lot of life.
