Con el viento

Meritxell Colell

Spain, 2018 - 105'

Returning to your family to get it back and explore it and dance. Dancing on the void, dancing overall.


Plot

Mónica is a dancer in Buenos Aires. One day her sister Elena calls her: their father is very sick. Coming back home to a little village opens old wounds while healing some others. The reencounter isn't easy to deal with, and Mónica takes shelter in what she better knows: the dance, to reconcile with the life and space that she had left behind.

With a paused rhythm, focused on the glances and gestures of the protagonist's women, the camera sews invisible threads accompanying four women who are renewing the bonds that put them together. The debut of Meritxell Colell is one of those films with strength in each move where the silence speaks.
