Hall Invites


The wake dance was a ritual held all around the Mediterranean Basin since time immemorial. When a child died, the community would keep vigil over the body by singing and dancing. Through grief-stricken Tomás, this film explores social failings and the absence of tradition and the consequences for the community.
