It’s Family Fun Day at the apartment on Calle San Nicolas as Jorge and Txisti and Ricardo and Iune and Garbiñe hang out all afternoon and into the evening to process the last roll of film, eat, dance, read, nap and telecine 24 hours of beautiful images…

After some frolicking with the Super 8 it’s back inside for a 12-hour processing marathon and snack-a-thon. Nice work Sandra & Idoia, Celia & Ruben, Marina & Katxo, Ione & Maite and Mirari & Das!!!!
