Sprouts OFFSPRING presents:
Clara Sola by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén
debut & eco
40-year-old Clara starts embracing the Costa Rican wilderness surrounding her remote village, slowly breaking free from her scripted life as a result of rural and religious repression in the proces. With her mystical debut director Nathalie Álvarez Mesén has crafted a fierce ecofeminist story with a compelling score and a transformative central performance. A powerful bonding between human and non-human.
Our yearly Sprouts Film Festival (which had its inaugural edition in June 2022) showcases cinema of the future by focusing on first works that have a loud socio-political message at their core and films with a strong environmental focus. Not only during our yearly festival, but also throughout the year Studio/K wants to bring you daring debuts and ecocinema. Under the banner of Sprouts OFFSPRING we will highlight films that could have been included in our festival competition, but that are given a regular Dutch release instead.
The second edition of Sprouts Film Festival will be held 11 – 14 May 2022.
