SOBRE EL CIELO / Over El Cielo

SOBRE EL CIELO / Over El Cielo

A road trip in a remote part of Western Europe: a woman and a man meet in the expansive landscape of the Canary Islands and travel on together; an older man living in a trailer attempts to communicate with the universe (or with himself). “Another world is possible” is written on the wreck of a ship lying on the coast. One rarely feels at home. (Dominik Tschütscher)
