El desierto

de Christoph Behl


Following a catastrophe, Axel, Jonatan and Ana hole up in a house reconverted into a bunker. For a while, they formed a love triangle, but the relationship slowly deteriorated when the latter two started to leave out the first. The situation takes another turn when, following and expedition to the outside world, they return with a “guest”. Highly oppressive, The Desert is a study on the physical and mental deterioration that occurs when our idea of “normality” explodes.
