La tierra es pobre
Un cortometraje de Ernst Lalleman, duration: 7.30min.
The land is poor.
A short film about a village in Western Spain, close to the Portuguese border.
How do the villagers react to the problems in rural spain. The population is ageing and within decades no one will replace the farmers. Young people move to the cities or abroad.
How do the villagers avoid that their villages which have been there for centuries and centuries will disappear.
This film was shot in August 2014.
In winter it is cold and the village seems empty, just the farmers and their families are there, altogether not more than 100 people. In summer sons, daughters, cousins and grandchildren return to celebrate San Lorenzo; a 5 days feast in commomeration of the village´s patron.
An attractive film that shows the endless beauty of the landscape and the vast power of its poulation.
