This screening is the international premiere of The Calm Tempest and is followed by a Q&A with director Omar A. Razzak.
In the middle of the ocean is a place where past and present meet - an island that used to be a prison. With haunting images and innovative sound design, The Calm Tempest tells its story, weaving together the lives of its current inhabitants and memories of the past. We see one of the few fishing boats left on the island set off to work for the last time, its journey told through evocative but static shots. Dialogue is often replaced with song, natural sounds or lingering silences.
This compelling portrait of a unique place invites us to lose our bearings, asking where history ends and we begin.
The Calm Tempest (La Tempestad Calmada), dir. Omar A. Razzak, Spain 2016, 73 Mins
