In 1492, among the crew captained by Christopher Columbus, three men manage to avoid a dire fate by taking part in this uncertain journey. When they reach the Canary Islands, they flee, taking one of the ship’s sails with them.
After a famous series of short films together, Girón and Delgado made their first feature film. Mixing historical and experimental movies, they reinvent the story of a group of people from Columbus’s expedition who discover the American continent. Hinted through the title of the movie, it is about the people who think of avoiding death but also carrying the heavy weight of death. According to the directors, “it is about mourning, about the death of our loved ones, of our friends. But also of those we never knew, of the ideas and memories that were buried along the way, and that somehow manage to stay alive in us, like an inextinguishable flame.” [Sung MOON]
