Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 23 min Catalan premiere Documentary


On the island of La Gomera a man dreams about flying. Children collect sounds in the forest and imagine stories while they examine archeological remains. An ethnofictional journey in which past and present coalesce, creating resonances between the volcanic landscape and Silbo, the whistled language of the island.
