In 1778 a group of merchants from Genoa became the first settlers on the island of Tabarca. 250 years later, a filmmaker shoots a documentary to discover the secrets of the posidonia, the longest living being on the planet. Everyone thinks it is algae, but it is a plant and produces flowers. The beautiful posidonia bloom should be the ending of the film. But a global pandemic will turn events around. All the islanders have disappeared. And the flowers too.

Adán Aliaga

He has directed seven feature films, recognized with awards such as the Joris Ivens at the IDFA Documentary Festival, a nomination for best documentary by the European Film Academy, a NY EMMY award, or the award for best documentary at Documenta Madrid, among others. In 2006 he released his first film, ‘My Grandmother’s House’, which participated in the Spanish Cinema section of the 51st Valladolid Festival, and in 2009 his second feature film, ‘Stigmata’, won the Pilar Miró Award for Best New Director . In 2014 he competed in the Official Section with ‘Noah’s Ark’, co-directed with David Valero, and in 2018 he was a Goya nominee for best short documentary for ‘The Fourth Kingdom’, co-directed with Àlex Lora.
