A sudden 10-year-cinema amnesia leads a young cinema-goer to search for the cinema halls of his teenage. So his wandering begins: a walk through closed shutter, abandoned buildings, new restaurant reconversions in search of the few surviving cinema halls. An ironic-melancholic documentary about the passage of time and cultural change enriched by the inevitable (fictional) opinions of anachronistic experts and intellectuals. Watch the Trailer
