Anna, who has moved abroad, returns for a few days to Barcelona. Back in her home city, she is haunted by her past love Alex as she walks through the neighborhood in which they used to live. Pol·len explores the young woman’s memories and also investigates the way in which neighbourhood life responds to tourism. Anna passes through the neighbourhood as if in a dream in which elderly people seem to be extras. Mass tourism has greatly transformed the city and Anna discovers that their old apartment is now an Airbnb rental. A slide show of Airbnb images disintegrates to give way to the images of memory, embodied by a point cloud bedroom, as if in a room that is “frozen in time.”
