1492. Three men who should have been dead have managed to avoid their fate by taking part in an uncertain journey led by Christopher Columbus. Reaching the Canary Islands, they flee. Meanwhile, in the “Old World”, a woman tries to save her sister by bringing her to a healer. Both journeys attempt to laugh at death. Both journeys are at the mercy of time and History.
With their works, Helena Girón (Compostela, 1988) and Samuel M. Delgado (Tenerife, 1987) show and investigate the relationships between mythology and materialism.
