28 Aug 2021 | O que arde – Fire Will Come (ES/FR/LU 2019, Oliver Laxe)

ES/FR/LU 2019, D: Oliver Laxe, D: Amador Arias, Benedicta Sánchez, 85’, Orig. with Eng. subs, DCP

Amador, an arsonist, has served his prison sentence and arrives back in his village, at the house of his mother Benedicta, their fields and animals. Framed by documentary scenes, the story gently unfolds, wrapped in the silences between mother and son. The repetition of rural rites and tasks, the concreteness of the bodies executing them, in turns with shots that fuse the characters with the landscape create an anthropological and timeless register. It communicates the intensity of a beautiful and hard land, metaphor of the protagonist’s cropped life and the depth of the unconditional love that protects him. Jury Prize in the section Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2019.
