Into another world: the Spanish-Columbian drama tells of grief, colonisation and rebellion, and deconstructs the Western founding myth. 1492. Among the crew of Christoph Columbus are three men who should really already be dead, who avoided their death sentences by joining this expedition with the uncertain outcome. When the ship reaches the Canary Islands, they flee and take a sail with them. Meanwhile, a woman does all she can to save her dying sister and brings her to a healer. Two journeys, both with the aim of cheating death.


HELENA GIRÓN (*1988 in Santiago de Compostela) and SAMUEL M. DELGADO (*1987 in Tenerife) together form the directing tandem »La banda negra«. In their work, they examine the relationship between mythology and materialism.
