A film about Africa at present, in the past, and – perhaps – in the future. A travel through time whereby we are confronted with so many stories, mysteriously crossing each other. A man embodying the French painter François Augiéras; some people looking for a bunker in the middle of the desert; a dune beside the sea; a gang of criminal bikers, some mysterious fortune-tellers, an almost human-shaped baobab, and a painter portraying the shapes of ancient African art. Los pasos dobles proceeds according to a narrative based on non-obvious connections, surprising paths, and stories spawning or connecting to other stories.
