In 1997 Peter Hoffmann made Last Year at a Rasiguères, a documentary about the grape harvest in an area near the Eastern Pyrenees. In 2005, he moved into the home of a Spanish beekeeper family (the Oliva) and used nothing but a Super 8 camera to capture their life and work routines during the honey recollection in Salamanca. The result was called Oliva Oliva and is a fun portrait of the adventures of a farming family, shaped as a road movie. Twenty years later, Hoffmann goes back to the same place to shoot and work in the recollection, pointing his camera (again in Super 8, again with a beautiful texture in the images) to find, just like Agnès Varda, the memories, mystery, and similarities between both activities, joining the personal, artistic, and handcrafting experiences.
