“I enjoy the cinema that does not rush to take you to one place. I feel as a spectator, that I need time to transport my self from the cinema theater to the reality presented in a movie.”

    YULENE OLAIZOLA Mexico, 2012

    Mexican director Yulene Olaizola’s remarkable docu-fiction hybrid homes in on a transformed landscape—Canada’s desolate, slowly emptying Fogo island—to explore themes of loneliness, community, and resilience in the face of devastation. A meditative reflection on the push and pull of the wilderness.
