The castle of Pozo Ibarra is a sort of miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower set in the heart of a mining valley, in the middle of the Central Mountains of León. LEJANO confronts this landscape with a critical eye, in search of the ideas for which, eighty years ago, thousands of people ended up in mass graves; the same ideas that for decades (before, during, and after Franco) made the miners the paradigm of the resistance of a people.
