This Day We Saw the Volcano

Audio Tracks 

On desert wilderness, without adults, two boys try to find answers to their questions. They roam through open spaces, without hurry. They rest in the middle of the road or under high voltage towers. They talk about life and death, ask what for are the teachers, about the big animals that died out many years ago, absolute darkness, foreign languages and about the news that comes to us in glass bottles. They make us question adulthood.

This film is not currently online :(
