A woman who just found out she’s pregnant is travelling alone. A couple wonders about their relationship. People pass through the natural springs of Cauquenes. Moments go by as the sun shines through the leafs, changing and shedding light on intimate spaces around the main character: her loneliness and reflections on her hair and skin. The sun runs through the layers of this blazing film, for which Torres Leiva finds a unique mixture of tones and textures that casts penetrating uncertainties on the screen –recorded in Hi8 digital camera and later projected on textures. Just as an image always has something to lose (and to gain) when it is filmed, Verano seems to wonder if the nature of memories also works that way; if those hidden treasures and insignificant, lonely visions can be sustained by a non-material element. In his seventh film, Torres Leiva shows why he’s one of the most awake and interesting filmmakers of his time.
