Between childhood and adult life, between life and death

In this poetic and dream-like drama we meet 13-year-old Selva, who finds herself somewhere between childhood and maturity, in a world where the boundary between life and death is not as absolute as in our own. When she’s not hanging out with her grandfather or her friends at school, Selva often spends time with a mysterious woman in the woods – a woman only she is able to see. LAND OF ASHES is a gorgeously sensuous coming-of-age movie with subtle elements of magical realism, from first-time director Sofia Quiros.
