Time seems to stand still in a village on the Galician coast. Everybody in there is paralyzed although we can still hear their voices:. They talk about ghosts, about witches, about monsters. Three women show up, they are trying to find Rubio, a sailor that has recently disappeared in the sea.
Director Lois Patiño returns to JEONJU IFF with his second feature film that captures the beautiful natural landscape. Like his first feature, he works with fixed frames and voice overs that accentuates the natural wonders from a distance, but this time he adds a narrative to the images. He creates a mythical story with elements such as villagers looking for the disappeared men or those who are revived from a shipwreck, sea monsters destroying villages, and witches. In Red Moon Tide, Patiño uses the form of modern cinema to tell an old folklore story. (Sung MOON)
