Palmeras en la nieve
Since 1926, the island of Fernando Po (present-day Bioko) has been part of Equatorial Guinea, although it was a Spanish territory since 1778, until the African country gained its independence in 1968. It's a complex chapter in Spanish history. Those were years of escalating tensions and violence, but news rarely made it to mainland Spain. The film is set in two different time periods. First, the period when Equatorial Guinea’s status changed from colony to overseas province, and eventually to independent nation. Second, present-day Bioko, a land that has been suffering from years of instability, dictatorships, disappearances, torture, and lack of freedom. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.
