Synopsis

Like the black sun of an eclipse, Antonia is a lyrical singer of exuberant and dark beauty. Recovering from a suicide attempt in a rehabilitation institution, all her family ties are irreparably broken. But her sister remains deeply affected by what happened. May they reunite once again?

Our take

The work of Colombian-French artist Laura Huertas Millán moves gently across disciplines, defying categorization. One of her self-termed “ethnographic fictions,” Black Sun is a mysterious and immersive inquiry into despair, family bonds, and the power of female resilience.
