DIRECTOR: Fernando Cortizo - SPAIN

Ramon, a convict who has escaped from jail, arrives in a remote Galician mountain village searching for a treasure hidden there years earlier. What at first appears to be a deserted town in which only a few old people live turns out to be a village under a mysterious curse that has existed for over 600 years. He soon finds himself in a nightmarish world in which the harmless elders are actually looking for souls to trade with the grim reaper himself. This adult fairy tale—a beguiling mix of stop-motion, 3D animation, and motion capture, steeped in a dark, gothic visual style and accompanied by a haunting soundtrack composed by Philip Glass—won the Audience Award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. (80 mins.)

First feature.
