23 Jun Galician documentary COSTA DA MORTE
We are delighted to announce, in partnership with Filmhouse, the special screening of stunning Galician documentary COSTA DA MORTE (Lois Patiño, Zeitun Films 2013) on the 25th of July, to coincide with the National Day of Galicia in Spain and continuing with our support year-round of the best emerging talent in the Ibero-American world. SAVE THE DATE!
Costa da Morte is a region in the north-west of Galicia (Spain), which was considered to be the end of the world during the Roman period. Its name comes from the numerous shipwrecks that have occurred throughout history in this dramatic landscape of rocks, mist and storms. We cross this land observing the people who inhabit it, fishermen, gatherers of shellfish, loggers… We witness traditional craftsmen who maintain both an intimate relationship and an antagonistic battle with the vastness of this territory. The wind, the stones, the sea, the fire, are characters in this film, and through them we approach the mystery of the landscape, understanding it as a unified ensemble with man, his history and legends.
We hope that there will be a Skype Q&A with director Lois Patiño after the screening – please check our website nearer the time for confirmation.
