Since 1971, Pablo Díaz Cuadrado has been living a few miles away from the Matrullas Lake, in the town of Orocovis, located at the central mountain chain of Puerto Rico. The name Orocovis means memory of the first mountain. Pablo’s kitchen inclines over this first mountain; the wall is the hillside reinforced with river stones. In this place Pablo plants and stores ancient grains and seeds, accumulates materials with possible and unpredictable future uses, supervises the decomposition and reconstruction of everything that surrounds him; raises bees and prepares himself for the moment in which water and food will no longer be available. The film approaches the physical structures, time, and symbolic value of Pablo’s project as well as the site as a whole, as an assemblage; from a political and aesthetic re- arguard that quietly picks up progress’s debris and tests alternative ways of living.
