Plus Ultra is Spain’s motto. It was used to encourage seafarers to conquer new lands, forgetting Greek mythology’s warning: Non Terrae Plus Ultra (No Land Beyond). The Canary Islands – test bench for the tactics used to colonise America – become the scene of a fable about the territory.

BIOGRAPHY

The works of Samuel M. Delgado and Helena Girón investigate the relations between mythology and materialism. Their films have widely toured the major international film festivals, such as Toronto, Locarno, New York, Mar del Plata, Rotterdam, FIC Valdivia, Curtas Vila do Conde, Ann Arbor or Media City Film Festival, as well as art centres such as the CCCB and the TEA. Prior to Plus Ultra they had co-directed the short films Sin Dios ni Santa María (2015) and Montañas ardientes que vomitan fuego (2016). Their latest work, Eles transportan a morte, is one of the projects selected for this year's Ikusmira Berriak.
