L.City is a visual poem about a lost love in a lost city.
It is an emotional piece, where exterior atmosphere, weather and sound reflect an interior state of mind, with the disrupted, non-linear structure that remembering can have.
L.City is made with cut-out photographs, lights and shadow animated frame by frame in a constant research of a new, abstract way of making films.
