THE WHISPER OF THE SEA
Columbia | Screenplay: Marcela Rincón González
Dominga is a nine year-old girl who, along with her family, has been forcibly displaced from her village by the sea. Far from the ocean, they have a hard time adapting. Dominga misses her days by the sea, when her father was still alive and she played with her friends. To feel close to the sea, Dominga sings songs from the Colombian Pacific coast even while she also struggles with an inner fear that manifests itself in the form of a shadow that appears in her dreams. One afternoon, Dominga meets Luis, an urban boy who suggests to take a trip to the sea. This project will be presented by Marcela Rincón González with an online Q&A afterwards.
