Acclaimed Debut The Soul Of Flies Released In UK Cinemas This Summer
Jonathan Cenzual Burley’s acclaimed The Soul Of Flies (El Alma de las Moscas) is released in UK cinemas on 13th July 2012. The film was nominated for Best First Film at the Sao Paulo IFF Official Selection and was winner of a Jury Special Mention in the Independent Selection at the Warsaw Film Festival.
El Alma de las Moscas tells the story of the two sons of Evaristo de la Sierra, who never met their father, and whose mutual existence they both ignored, until Evaristo sends them a letter inviting them to his funeral.
When the Brothers meet at a train station, where to their surprise the train hasn’t gone by in years, it is the beginning of their wanderings through barren landscapes, punctuated by chance encounters with the weird and wonderful characters that inhabit that land, such as a suicidal narcoleptic; a man with serious anger issues towards funerals; a bunch of thieving musicians and a young woman in love with the spring, who try, in one way or another, to guide them in their journey to their father’s funeral through paths made of memories, fables, solitude and dreams.
