From the end of September to the beginning of October, a Hollywood production, through Sur Film, and the most delicate signature cinema have come together on the Island
Sur Film has been the Tenerife service production company responsible for bringing the shooting of Wonder Woman 1984 to Spain. The shooting period made in Spain has been completed in different areas of Isla Baja and Anaga in Tenerife during the last week of September and the first week of October. Once again, the movie stars Gal Gadot, and will be directed by Patty Jenkins, the first woman to direct a major blockbuster. The main cast includes Kristen Wiig, who will play the film’s main villain, Cheetah; and Chris Pine, playing his role again as Steve Trevor.
Meanwhile, the producer El Viaje Films, also from Tenerife, has co-produced the feature film Blanco en blanco by director Theo Court. This Chilean-Spanish production, with international awards for development, tells a story in Tierra del Fuego. For ten days, magnificent locations in Tenerife such as Teno Alto and the Teide National Park have served as a stage, recreating the desolate landscapes of the Chilean Patagonia. It has also been shot in Garachico due to its iconic colonial architecture.
Blanco en blanco is set in Tierra del Fuego in the prelude of the twentieth century, when the marriage of an omnipotent landowner is about to take place, who has violently snatched his land from the natives. A photographer arrives here, at the furthest corner of the earth, to immortalize the ceremony. The bride to be, a girl who is traveling with him, becomes his obsession. An obsession that leads him to seal a pact where in exchange for betraying power, he can enjoy the innocent beauty of the girl. After losing his privileges for his betrayal, his relationship with the world of images goes beyond eroticism, delving deeper and deeper into a society that coexists with the genocide of the Ona people, becoming an accomplice through his pictures.
Over the following months we will see Tenerife on the big screen in two cinematographic productions as different as they are suggestive.
