Me voy. Me voy

On December 31, 2015 the Valdeska bookstore in Valencia closed its doors definitively after forty years of activity. It began, developed and ended without concessions. On its business card it was described as a non-bookstore, and Sergio, its owner, as the stealthiest bookseller in town.

During a visit to the Stockholm library, Sergio felt any accumulation was strange. So many books, so many authors, sapped his energy. He decided he would continue among books, but not selling them. I am leaving. Me voy is not the story of a bookstore, nor the portrait of an unusual bookseller, it is a will to fix things in the filmed images, to make something lasting by showing the moment of its disappearance.
