(La Tierra y la Sombra)

Alfonso is an old farmer who has returned home to tend to his son, who is gravely ill. He rediscovers his old house, where the woman who was once his wife still lives, with his daughter-in-law and grandson. The landscape that awaits him resembles a wasteland. Vast sugar cane plantations surround the house, producing perpetual clouds of ash. 17 years after abandoning them, Alfonso tries to fit back in and save his family. (In Spanish with English subtitles)

WINNER of three awards in Cannes:

Camera d’Or (Best First Feature), SACD Award and Prix Revelation

Grand Prize AFI Film Festival

“Winner of three prizes at Cannes including the prestigious Camera D’Or awarded to a first-time film-maker across the whole festival selection, Cesar Arcevedo’s Land And Shade (La Tierra Y La Sombra) is a beautifully-shot, if artistically uncompromising, film about the plight of peasant sugar cane labourers on a ruined plantation as told through one decaying family unit...

Alfonso sweeps ash from the hearth, the rugged faces of the cane workers are silhouetted against the looming cane and apocalyptic fires - there’s plenty to take from Land And Shade, courtesy of Arcevedo’s cameraman Mateo Guzman.”-Screen Daily
