Fandang˘ de Carmen Porter

by Syd Briscoe

Califato ż : “Fandang˘ de Carmen Porter” - 5 mins 22s

Religion, grief, and madness come together in this striking promo for Califato 3/4's 'Fandang˘ de Carmen Porter'. The film's heightened drama and stylised visuals suit the narrative perfectly, as a father is so distraught at the death of his daughter that he begins to hallucinate her as an apparition of the Virgin Mary. Uncanny and unsettling in equal measure, it's also a gorgeous piece of storytelling from director Nono Ayuso.
