Product Notes

Winner of the top award at numerous film festivals, including Rotterdam and Buenos Aires, the Sky Turns is a sublime contemplation of time, memory, and mortality that evokes Victor Erice's the Spirit of the Beehive, El Sur and the Dream of Light. After a 35-year absence, director Mercedes Alvarez returns to her native village Aldealsenor in remote northwest Spain. She was the last child born there; now only 14 aged inhabitants remain. Though her film is intensely personal, lvarez yields the spotlight to the dwindling but tenacious villagers. The passing years have made them natural philosophers, historians, and comedians -they muse on the transience of things, regard the folly of conquerors from Caesar to Bush, and lace it all with ironic, quintessentially Spanish humor.
