THE SEA STARES AT US FROM AFAR
EL MAR NOS MIRA DE LEJOS
2017, 92 min, Spain/Netherlands, Dir: Manuel Muñoz Rivas

The legend of an ancient and forgotten civilization lies buried beneath a large expanse of dunes. For more than a century, certain travelers have reached this remote and desolate territory looking for the traces of ancient inhabitants, the ruins of a city, or perhaps a sort of lost utopia. Ignorant of these myths and the romantic delusions of archaeologists and adventurers, a few solitary men, barely visible among the sands, today inhabit that place facing the sea.
