They carry death. And still try to escape it. On the Canary Islands, a group of convicts eludes the fleet of Christopher Columbus and flees with a giant sail across the volcanic solitude. Meanwhile in Galicia, a woman is rescued and brought to a healer by her sister. The figures are particles of a bigger cosmos, in which the sun is torturing, the wind is biting, the earth is belching out bloody rocks, the sea is looking for bodies that have been promised to it and the ships keep on carrying death – into the “New World”. How is history told? Who carries meaning? A vigorous contemplation about the fragility of history and the role of gender in it.
