Almacita, soul of desolato
(Almacita di desolato)

by Félix DE ROOY

The film is based on Caribbean legends with as theme the struggle between creative and destructive spirits, fertility and drought.The action is set on the island of Curaçao around the turn of the century, in an isolated farming community of former slaves. Desolato, as the village is known, has developed its own life style far from the white “shons”, the landowners. Solem is the priestess who has the task of protecting the spiritual welfare of the community and maintaining contact with the spirits. She has devoted herself to the community, and therefore cannot have any kind of relationship with a man…
