After his wife’s suicide, Lluc travels to the uninhabited island of Quest, where his wife died, to classify its flora. After some days of solitary work, his sister mysteriously appears, and some difficult memories from their past are brought back in their conversations. This is a beautiful, mesmerising film with very subtle elements of the supernatural and 19th-century German romanticism. It deals with grief, guilt and the exorcism of our own ghosts in a profoundly moving way. This is Antonina Obrador’s debut film and it has echoes of filmmakers like Tarkovsky, Bergman or Dreyer with exquisite framing in 4:3.
We are thrilled to welcome Director Antonina Obrador to the 20th October screening.
