Spirits and Rocks: an Azorean Myth


Espíritos e Rochas: um Mito Açoriano
Chinese Mainland Premiere

From the ocean, a volcanic island rises into steamy mist. A narrator describes how the island’s first inhabitants sought to explain the violent eruption by attributing the devastation to the wrath of angry gods. This poetic exploration considers the human relationship to this volatile land, where residents live alongside the looming threat of eruption with reverence, fear, and awe. A collection of scenes where dark and light miraculously coexist illuminates both the physical and spiritual landscapes of this extraordinary place, where life endures the perils of the natural world.
