Flores
Zabaltegi - Tabakalera

When a natural crisis occurs, the entire population of the Azores is forced to evacuate due to an uncontrolled plague of hydrangeas, a common flower in the islands. Two young soldiers, impassioned by the beauty of the landscape, guide us through the tales of sadness of those forced to leave and the inherent desire to resist and stay on the islands. The filmic wandering becomes a nostalgic and political reflection on territorial belonging and identity, and the roles we assume in the places we come from.

BIOGRAPHY

The work of Jorge Jácome is based on a strongly intuitive and sensory process resulting in films made from narrative drifts, unexpected relationships and unusual encounters. Among others, he has directed the short films Plutão (2013), A Guest + A Host = A Ghost (2015) and Fiesta Forever (2016), screened at numerous European film festivals and as part of retrospectives at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the Palais de Tokyo, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, CalArts-California Institute of the Arts and Georgetown University.
