THE TROPIC SEAMOUNT, A TALE OF THE LOCKDOWN

DOLBY STEREO, 73 MIN, 4K, 2022

Agadiri and Oussama, two Moroccan friends, laze around and survive while the camera explores their bodies and faces. Both have been in Spain for a short time and have to face a supposedly temporary situation, which must culminate in the definition of their future in the midst of a pandemic. But things are not simple at all. Filmed indoors, Monte Tropic travels little by little towards a more undefined and dreamlike space to question the memories and desires of these young people, whose inactivity claims the right to be above the disastrous political use of their situation.
