Nona Fernández and Isaki Lacuesta

Can we learn from the errors of the past? Can we rebuild what has previously been broken? When does the future begin? We rehearse, we try, we repeat, we get it wrong, and we try again. Among the ruins and mistakes, day after day, the sun rises once more. We wake up, time and time again, with the opportunity to amend what we have done, with a new chance to try afresh.
