"Camps” is an attempt to (re)build a landscape. Between 1937 and 1943 in Asturias, during Franco's regime, a recreational area and a target shooting range housed a concentration camp through which thousands of Republicans passed – first militiamen and later guerrilla fighters and their families. Sharing a pensive observational gaze with the viewer, the film attempts to resignify the space and revive its political meaning. It is not a question of showing (or filming) the invisible, but rather revealing what is absent from what exists today. What was there and no longer is, not even a trace in people's memories.
