Dácil Manrique de Lara Millares
Alberto Manrique, founder of the Archer art movement, is one of the Canary Islands’ most innovative 20th-century artists. As he approaches his later years, his memory is beginning to fade, and with it, a lifetime of stories may be lost. The painter’s granddaughter, the director Dácil Manrique, returns to her grandparents’ home to help Alberto recover the memories of his life and career. As she sifts through old Super-8 footage and diaries, she discovers a beautiful love story between her grandparents and the magical world they created together — but also realises that she, too, is on an unexpected journey of recovery from her own past.
