In recent years the author of this work, Martín Weber, went through two simultaneous experiences: he became a father and he lost his. His father had an obsession in his final days: he was, he said, not leaving anything for what he would be remembered for. Then Weber, instinctively, began to document those last moments. He asked his father to collaborate with his portraits. He somehow wanted to keep him alive. The video is the last register of the time they shared. The book also gathers drawings, texts, portraits, songs and video-stills from Skype as a place of reflection, memory, family love and generational transcendence.
This filial testimony, although personal, can be understood better than ever by any of us because of the central place that technology has in our daily lives during this pandemic. It is the bridge that allows closeness and day-to-day life, despite the distance, with our family, sentimental and working bonds, or to say it simply, with our previous life.
