La Roya / The Rust

by Juan Sebastián Mesa Window: San Sebastián

27-year-old Jorge looks anxiously over his coffee plantation: La roya, coffee rust, has already attacked the first bushes. The upcoming grand village festival seems to offer the perfect distraction, especially since Jorge's friends and his first great love will return from the city to attend. Set against the background of the lonely coffee plantations of Antioquia and with a great, hypnotic sound design, LA ROYA addresses the contrast between city and countryside through the story of a man who is the only one of his generation not to migrate to the city. A delight for the eyes and ears!
