Costa da Morte
Poetic documentary about the treacherous north-western coast of Galicia, known as the 'Coast of Death' thanks to its countless shipwrecks and raging storms. The inhabitants, their stories and the awe-inspiring natural world are portrayed in loving, beautiful, quiet tableaux.
Three figures appear from the gloom. Dawn gives the abstract silhouettes in the desert increasing volume, while the call to prayer breaks the silence.
