First part of the Tríptico Elemental, a spanish trilogy. With this trilogy, the director intends to move past the status of the documentary imagery. Val del Omar proposes a mythical exploration of his country, through three different regions: Andalusia, Castile and Galicia. The director draws inspiration from his country’s artistic traditions, incorporating culture and art history. 
In Water-mirror of Granada, it’s the arquitecture (Alhambra), the music (flamenco) and the poetry (we can discern the references to Lorca), that are involved in the same aquatic fluidity.
