The Last Archer
Alberto Manrique’s memory is beginning to fade. He is the founder of the Archers art movement and one of the most revolutionary Canarian artists of the 20th century. His granddaughter, the filmmaker Dácil Manrique, visits her grandpa and grandma to help the artist not to lose his memories of the past. The filmmaker discovers diaries and archive footage, and with them her grandparents’ love story and the wonderful world they created. These memories help Dácil Manrique to comprehend her own past.
