amelina

Directed by: 
2018

The deeper Amelina "Coca" San Martín gets on her way through and look at life, the more light and darkness and mountains and heritage and gentleness she discovers. But interpreting would be limiting, explaining would be blurring, instead of preserving what has been given: "What it means? We will never know." Full of dignity and tranquillity, the film "amelina" engages with a history thousands of years old and rich in years, with the past in the present, with the dignity of man in the portrait of a woman, with the dignity of a life in view of the art of the ancestors. A film about how we came into being, how small our life is – and therefore so big. (Photo: Internationale Kurzfilmtage/Rubén Guzmán)
