Film

Finisterrae isn't a conventional film. The idea of the film in itself is unheard of, with a philosophy that starts off in the first place from the filming and the capture of images to elaborating the script and adding the dialogue later. This process has allowed the classic structure of a 'road movie' to be experimented and has been developed with the freedom of not having to give itself up to a tight script.

The rest is enigmatic and singular cinema, impregnated with a very particular atmosphere, full of unusually beautiful imagery and a sense of humour both ironic and surreal.


Synopsis

Finisterrae tells the story of two ghosts who, tired of wandering through limbo, decide to take the Way of Saint James, to the end of the world so that once there, they may begin a new fleeting, earthly stage in the land of the living.

An introspective journey through dreamlike and unwelcoming lands in which they will come across extraordinary characters. The two must confront unexpected situations, battle with their own fears and struggle with the obstacles of their own ghostly condition.
