In 50 words or less, what’s this film about?
Years after their break-up, Tanya and Josean meet again at a conference on renewable energy. She has a lot to tell him…
 
What inspired you to make this film?  
The idea of being in a room full of people and suddenly you notice that the translator in the headphones is talking only to you. The idea that everything can have a new beggining, even something. Not only the energy but also relationships, dreams, hopes...

What’s your connection to Mississippi?  (If you don’t have one, why did you apply to a Mississippi festival?):
We don’t have any connection with Mississippi although we would love to visit it.
 
Anything else you want the audience to know about your film:
Twelve years ago we made a short film called Wavelength (“Sintonía”) where we showed how the same character met with each other for the first time. 12 years later, we wanted to know what happened with these two people. The style of these two stories is quite similar. In both of them they talk to each other not directly but through machines such as a radio, a telephone or headphones.
