Northern Spain’s Galician coast has been considered a boundary since antiquity, a place where the land ends and life meets eternity. Later, it came to be called the Coast of Death, because its wild cliffs sealed the fate of many a ship. At the beginning of the 21st century, however, director Lois Patiño interprets the “Costa da morte” as a disconcerting symbol for modern man’s un-heroic struggle over the shape of the landscape and the exploitation of natural resources.

The filmmaker’s seemingly indifferent camera and mosaic of long, well-planned shots represent an angst-ridden introspection of his fears as to the outcome of this struggle.
