No Ver El Océano / To not See The Ocean (2019) 

Lena is a young man going through a moment of change in his life. In the course of a week he has a series of encounters with people close to him that make him go through all kinds of situations.

The story of "To not See The Ocean" is presented to us in a peculiar and fragmented way. The narrative is linear, but we feel how the story, despite moving along with the facts, does not reveal all that occurs between some scenes and others. In this audiovisual piece the artist Gómez Selva explores cinematographic language using different codes and premises on which to experiment, such as a non-professional cast in the field of interpretation, the timing and contemplation of the images, the capture format and the "handheld" recording, among others.
