director: Burak Korkmaz, Pedro Figueiredo Neto
original title: GUADIANA IN FOUR MOVEMENTS
running time: 12 min.
synopsisThe Guadiana River, which forms the link between Portugal and Spain and serves as a powerful source of water supplying vital energy to the entire southeastern Iberian Peninsula, may soon dry up completely. Like many other rivers, its very existence has come under threat by climate change, which is also, in turn, leading to the demise of the rhythmic cadences that have resounded along this water flow for centuries.
“We, human beings, are a plague. A plague that is overloading its own planet. And, what's worse, a plague that is aware of being so.”
