Daniela Franco researched the Sandy story, turning to twelve prominent writers who claimed to have information. They provide clues through notebooks of poems, a documentary script, letters between teenagers, wild guesses, family histories, batches of objects and even eyewitness testimony.
A selection of accidental photographs taken by Mr. Sandy, which is mysterious and attempts to reassemble the history of a family from what they have forgotten, and which helps others to remember, to imagine. A search for images and texts of the Sandy family who lived in Northern California between 1940 and 1960, leading the typical life of a middle-class family. At least, that’s what the slides that ended up in a flea market tell us.
