Ainhoa Gutiérrez del Pozo (San Sebastian, 1994) is a filmmaker and researcher. She graduated in Fine Arts in the University of the Basque Country, and completed her Master’s degree at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires.

Abaño, 2086

In the future, energy is running out. It is winter 2086. The world has collapsed, and there is hardly any electricity left anywhere on earth. Akuario (38) lives alone in an abandoned hydroelectric power station, and she has a plan: for the bees to outlive humanity. She uses what is left of the electric power on the wellbeing of the beehives and also to overcome the loneliness and anxiety that the end of the world has generated in her.
One day, coming down the road that runs parallel to the red river, Sașa (34) arrives in Abaño in an electric blue car. They fall in love, but soon an argument breaks out: Sașa knows that the electricity generated by the power plant could power her return trip to Bucharest, while it has been years since Akuario exploited the river for his own benefit.
Ethics, love and science fiction in times of apocalypse.
