The Sky Turns
Seattle Premiere!

(Mercedes Álvarez, 2005, Spain, 35mm, 110 min) Mercedes Álvarez was three years old when her parents decided to leave the village of La Aldea at the end of the 1960s. Today, only fourteen inhabitants live in this barren corner of northern Spain, a population which is probably the end of over a thousand years of uninterrupted settlement. Alvarez, who was the last child to be born in La Aldea, returns after many years to the land of her ancestors to film a portrait of its handful of settlers. She records what are at first glance ordinary moments (villagers at work or in conversation), but whose uniqueness lies in being caught between timelessness and the approaching end.
