“August 31, 2019… from that moment on, the way I see the world has changed. Everything has changed. The premature death of María, her decision to put an end to her own life, has marked a different cut, a clear delineation of before and after". - Martín Kollar After was formed as a result of the death of Martin Kollar's partner, Maria As time passed after the cataclysmic event, Kollar began to cautiously navigate through his photographic archive, returning to the years, months and days they spent together thanks to the vast amount of material from the trips they made to explore places and film together. In their last two years together, they had visited various research centers and public institutes when they began to prepare and shoot 'Crónica', the film they were going to make together. These excursions into the past took place in various stages, from the Kollar's original inability to open the file, to periods of obsession during which he couldn't stop thumbing through the multitude of photographs from his and Maria's past lives. emerging from the images were hidden contexts and threads that I hadn't seen before. Kollar began to bring them together, but not with the goal of rebuilding his life. Instead, he sought to express how the before transcends the after; how the most anticipated events always find you unprepared.
