Elisenda Trilla Ferré - 2016 - Catalonia - 51'
  • Catalan Documentary

Without water there is no life. We are aware of this reality when we face it; at a village, at home, abroad. We have to drill the ground and build a well, but first, we must find the water spring that will feed it.
At that moment appears the water diviner, the man of the pendulum, who knows the subsoil better than anyone else. A character that is between magic and reason, a water diviner has ancestral knowledge awareness. Sure about his success, he will be the one that will say the place where the water is.
We will meet Pere M. Sanromà –water diviner of Vespella, a village in the Baix Gaià- and watching his daily life, we will know what these last "wizards of the water" do.

Screening: Zumzeig - 03/11 – 5.30 p.m.
