Festival starts in


On the moon there is a sea called the Ocean of Storms. Its name comes from a superstition of recurring bad weather at the moon’s last quarter. Through a series of metaphors, the film addresses humanity’s great theme of self-destruction, a celestial storm caused by human action. With mankind as passengers, a wanderer hero floats inside an infinite universe, taking us on a poetic odyssey. The order reigning over the cosmos, this entity uniting heaven and earth, Gods and men is disrupted by the sheer ambition of our hero. A devious upheaval causing the stars to disappear.
