A story for the Modlins / Una Historia para Los Modlin
Spain, 2012, Colour, 26 min
After appearing in the film Rosemary's Baby, by Roman Polanski, Elmer Modlin ran away with his wife Margaret and his son Nelson to a distant land. They shut themselves inside a dark apartment, where Margaret devoted herself to painting the coming Apocalypse, using Nelson and Elmer as models. Thirty years later, hundreds of the family's intimate photographs and documents appeared on the sidewalk like a jigsaw puzzle, waiting for someone to come along and piece together “a story for the Modlins”.
