20 Persones: Un experiment social amb gust de cafè is a collection of interviews that explores the differences and similarities of people, through a common habit - coffee drinking. This social experiment aims to find the uniqueness within each human being and, at the same time, discover the core values, worries or preferences that we all share.
I interviewed 20 very different people from my hometown, Garriguella, and asked them the exact same 10 questions to find out how different (or similar) they were. The first question: How do you drink your coffee?
And here's the metaphor of the differences that unite us: each of them likes to drink coffee, and each of them likes to drink it differently - in the morning, plain black, after lunch, in a glass, with no sugar...
Humans can be quite interesting, can't we?

After burning all bridges, Quinn enters a new world that is incomprehensible but fascinating. Right after his arrival in Tokyo, he gets sucked into a parallel world that is far from the postcard pictures. It is a world of murder, guilt, and lies. Caught in the nightlife of Shinjuku, the only escape becomes the indifferent world of the convenience store. Soon names become only a vague reminiscence of the past, and memory itself is called into question. Without anything reliable left, one starts to wonder which parts of life exist and which are imagined. The only element that remains consistent is jazz. The world becomes untrustworthy, spontaneous, and unpredictable. But only until one goes beyond.
