Summits and Ashes

by Fernando Criollo 17:25 Documentary Peru 

We walk towards the highest that our legs and thoughts allow. Here, where the oxygen is diluted with each step, our breaths intermingle with the music and are lost among the explosions, screams and infinite mountains. The wind carries all the living weight on its shoulders and sings in the language of the chosen ones. There the vestiges of the clash between two worlds await us. Will we meet again?

Anticline

by Joao Gil 13:13 Documentary Portugal

In the anticline of Estremoz-Borba-Vila Viçosa in Alentejo, is located one of the oldest and most productive marble extraction industries in Portugal. This industry has deeply marked the landscape of this region.

The movie approaches the problematic of the transformation of the environment into commodities, from a point of view that intends to be that of the stone itself, in which we can find the colossal quarries, some more than a hundred meters deep, thus exposing these monumental scars. The testimony falters between the stone, the machines and the landscape, in which humanity, seemingly, ceased to exist.
