The Ashes Remain Warm

Na cinza fica calor

Directed by Mónica Martins Nunes
Cape Verde, Portugal, 2016
Documentary, Short


Pico do Fogo is the name of a volcano on the Cap Verde Islands whose last eruption buried the small community of Chã das Caldeiras under lava. It came like a black flood and covered everything. What’s left is a metre-high blanket of intricate forms from which a few scattered roofs protrude.
