The Ashes remain Warm

Mónica Martins Nunes

Cape Verde, Germany, Portugal / 2016 / 20' / Italian premiere


The villages of Chã das Caldeiras lie inside the crater of the volcano Pico do Fogo in Cabo Verde. After losing everything they own on the last eruption, its inhabitants are forced to reconstruct their lives. A subjective visual tale on real loss, a symbiotic relationship and the possibility of the eternal return.
