Ashes form the Sky

The first environmental Spanish fiction film

Feature fiction | 91' | 2008 | Spain

Direction: José Antonio Quirós

Work done in BAUSAN FILMS


“Ashes from the sky “ is a naturalistic comedy about the love of nature and the inability of man to conquer the forces of development. In a paradisiacal valley crowned by a thermal power station, a villager (“Federico” - Celso Bugallo) has spent 30 years fighting for the closing of the plant. He firmly believes that the Kyoto Agreement will close it down. This is a contradictory story in which there is no unique truth. In “Ashes from the sky “ there are small victories and small failures.
