In March 1980, César Alarcón traveled to Pompeii on an ambitious project: to collect 'psychophonies' - electronic voice phenomena - from Vesuvius’s great eruption that destroyed the city. After listening to all of his recordings, he finds that none contain sounds from the year 79 AD. However, one of the tapes caught a much more recent and peculiar bit of conversation that César had heard somewhere before.

City of Signs is a journey through the films of Italian director Roberto Rossellini. His movies were a stiletto opening the breach through which all modern film would later pass. The spaces he used as locations in his films still conserve signs from the shooting, signs that form part of an immense city constructed behind both the living and the dead.
