Fire Will Come / O que arde

by Oliver Laxe Window: San Sebastián

Traces of life are reflected in Amador’s melancholic gaze. He has just returned to his home village after spending the past two years in jail for arson. Nestled between the arid forests of the Galician mountains, he finds himself back on the small farm alongside his mother Benedicta and their three cows. Nobody in the village has been awaiting the hermit’s return. As life goes on with the wind blowing over the hills, another fire is raging through the forest one night, threatening both land and life. FIRE WILL COME is a mystical nature drama that oscillates hypnotically between tranquil and thunderous. Winner of the “Un Certain Regard” Jury Award at Cannes.
