CILAOS

 

Synopsis

 

(ENG)

To keep a promise made to her dying mother, a young woman goes off in search of her father, a womanizer she has never met. Along the way, she soon learns that he is dead. But that doesn’t change her plans, she still intends to find him.

Carried by the spell-binding rhythm of the maloya, a ritual chant from Reunion Island, Cilaos explores the deep and murky ties that bind the dead and the living.

(FR)

Pour tenir la promesse faite à sa mère mourante, une jeune femme part à la recherche de son père, homme volage qu’elle n’a jamais connu. En chemin, elle apprend rapidement que l’homme est mort. Son plan ne change pas pour autant, elle doit retrouver son père.

Porté par le rythme envoutant du maloya, chant rituel réunionnais, Cilaos explore les liens profonds et troubles qui unissent morts et vivants.

(ESP)

Para mantener la promesa hecha a su madre muriente, una joven  parte en busca de su padre, que nunca conoció. En el camino rápidamente se entera de que el hombre ya está muerto. Su plan no cambia sin embargo, ella debe encontrar a su padre.

Llevado por el ritmo embriagador del maloya, canto ritual reunionés, Cilaos explora los lazos profundos y turbios que unen a los muertos y a los vivos.
