Striking Land

Raul Domingues

Experimental / Mini-DV / 65' / 2022

It is told that in the past, two wrongdoers came to serve their sentence of taking care of an uninhabited and fallow land. Their sentence was passed from generation to generation and was inherited by the men who work it.
A barefoot woman is tilling the land and is surprised by a leaf.
