The meaning of the word “zumiriki” in the Basque language can be summed up in the phrase “an island located in the middle of the river” and director Oscar Alegría spent his childhood years in such a place: a small island swallowed up by the waters of the river Arga following the construction of a dam. An allegorical journey that aims to recreate a paradise lost and immerse us in an invisible locus amoenus that can only survive through memory. A poetic study on the spiritual bond that ties us to the land, capturing the ultimate trace of existence: the echoing silence.
