‘La viajante’ and ‘Hombres de leche’ are the titles of these fascinating Canaries projects
Volcano Films, a veteran Canaries production company, is shooting two feature films in 2018 packed with Canaries talent. The first film, La viajante, directed by Miguel Mejías and co-produced by Digital 104 and Volcano Films, is currently being shot. Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are the perfect locations for this story. Hombres de leche is in pre-production and is directed by Canaries David Pantaleón. This is the first feature of a director whose talent shines in the many short films he has shot.
Ángela, the heroine in La viajante is thirty-something. Her life is dull and quiet, always by the side of her sick mother. When she dies, Ángela aimlessly takes to the road, going across lonely landscapes. During her journey, she meets a mysterious man, Miquel. They decide to travel north together, in a quiet understanding. They spend their last night at a road bar, El ansia de infinitud, a run-down place for lonely night souls. Following a heated argument, Miquel reveals the true reasons behind his journey.
Hombres de leche is a present-day story of two brothers, the sons of the most important goat breeder and cheese producer in the north of the Island of Fuerteventura, don Guillermo Cabrera. The three of them fell out years ago. When their father dies, they learn that in order to have access to the inheritance, their father’s last will was for the two of them to take the goat herd to the other end of the island and give it to Don Oswaldo, the most important goat breeder and cheese producer in the south and Don Guillermo’s main rival. The film will be shot in Tenerife too.
Both films received funds from the Government of the Canary Islands and the crew is made up of Canaries professionals. The cast in Hombres de leche is also from the islands.
