Our take

A palpable sense of threat permeates Salka Tiziana’s atmospheric, sun-drenched debut. With majestic drone shots punctuating its exquisite 16mm compositions, this unlikely family sojourn in the Andalusian mountains simmers with unease as the landscape and the sound of the cicadas gradually take over.
