Standing at the verge of her own execution, an almost defeated Earth witnesses how the actions of her most ungrateful inhabitants continue to shorten her lifespan.
Determined to give Earth a voice to express her suffering, loud and clear, this experimental film creatively adapts the writings of renowned Galician poet Rosalía De Castro, to draw attention to the impact that humans have on Earth’s own survival. To that end, filmmakers Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino produce an avant-garde film that, while abstract in essence, seeks to visually and aurally depict Earth’s own suffering. Using the CO2 pollution sonified data as a distress signal from Earth’s herself, the Also Sisters visually express the pain that our planet is being subjected to. The beautifully moving score composed by Elisabet Curbelo adds an essential layer to this story of Earth’s call for aid.
The film figuratively presents Earth standing at the threshold of her own death while humans continue to pollute and damage her. Unbeknownst to them, Earth will not tolerate it for much longer.
