Camping life is a documentary that portrays life on a Costa Brava campsite during the summer of 2020. The camera follows the various stories and anecdotes of the day to day life of the uninhibited campers with the intention to portray the concept of holidays for contemporary man. The film makes a unique portrait of how the coronavirus crisis was experienced during the summer of 2020 by a middle class determined to be able to enjoy their recreation time no matter what. Finally, the concept of an ephemeral city is explored, which comes alive every summer to become an organic entity devoted to leisure, and then just as quickly fades away at the end of the summer as it's population disappears.
