Cinema On Demand: Land of Ashes (15*)

Chronic Youth 2020

two young girls

Land of Ashes follows a young woman as she negotiates grief and adolescence in rural Costa Rica. 

Sofia Quiros Ubeda follows her acclaimed short film Selva (2017) with this poetic debut feature. In the wake of her mother’s death, young Selva must navigate the enigmatic world around her.

Caught between childhood and adolescence, Selva searches for a strong female role model for guidance. With only her elderly dependent grandfather and his flirty girlfriend around, she seeks a mystical means of comfort. This philosophical interpretation of the coming-of-age genre is interwoven with dream-like meditations on grief, loss and hope

Selected for Cannes Critics Week 2019.
