VALLEY OF SOULS(TANTAS ALMAS) Features
When his two sons are killed by a death squad and thrown in Colombia’s Magdalena River, a grieving father embarks on a dangerous journey to recover their bodies.
This powerful debut recalls a Colombia ravaged by civil conflict in the early 2000s. First-time actor Arley de Jesús conveys a haunting intensity as ageing fisherman José, who must come to terms with the country’s turmoil while grieving the loss of his sons. José’s quiet determination is challenged by the draining humidity and the untamed, often dangerous, landscape, as he follows the river’s edge in his wooden fishing boat. Valley of Souls is a deftly handled and exquisitely shot film of few words but layered experiences that will resonate long after the closing credits.
