Director: Sergio Caballero
"There's something undeniably compelling about so much bizarreness." - Variety
Two Russian ghosts take a 'spiritual' journey through the north of Spain, hunting a great oracle who will offer them the chance to be reborn. Through snow-covered fields, forests of plastic ears and flocks of reindeer, the ghosts - one carrying a windsock, the other on horseback (or wheelchair) - trek ever closer to their goal.
First-time filmmaker Sergio Caballero (co-director of the beloved Barcelona music and art festival, Sonar) blends high art and low comedy in this quirky modern-day fable inspired by Philippe Garrel's La Cicatrice intérieure.
Featuring the seismic talents of cinematographer Eduard Grau (Tom Ford's A Single Man, Rodrigo Cortes's Buried), and winner of a coveted Tiger award at this year's Rotterdam film festival, Finisterrae is an unorthodox, unexplainable and utterly indefinable cinematic experience.
