A light turns on. They are elusive and hard to see.
They inhabit where nothing is. There. In the deep.” - Xacio Baño
The history of the Spanish Civil War is made of black holes, forgetfulness, missing images, bodies, and names. This film is a truly cinematic attempt to say that which found no words to grasp for, to bring to light that which exists in the obscurity of faded memories. The story of a young boy who died in war becomes the matter of a country’s destiny, resonating to today.

 


Deep Waters is available on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects and Doc/Player from Friday 13 November at 5:00pm until Thursday 26 November at 11:59pm.
