#7stories is an artistic project aimed at showing the Canary Islands from different points of view. Seven of the most imBYtant “video tellers” m on the Vimeo platform were invited to travel to the Canary Islands and capture with their camera the experiences that make each island such an unforgettable place. A personal viewpoint where the creators' own emotion and sensitivity come to the fore. The result was spectacular: 7 audiovisual creations as different and surprising as the islands themselves.
