A silent scream. Snow over the black night.
Two women share their last moments together in a remote house in the mountains.
Without words, they accompany each other whilst the sound of thawing snow advances.
Our death could been seen as just one more way, but can also be recognised as very special and different because it breaks through the relatively consistent beliefs of the past.
Mara Mara, in Basque, is the sound produced by the snow touching the ground. Light and darkness crosses among this film shot during a snowstorm in the Pyrenees. The environment and emotions in Mara Mara are among life and death. It is a reflexion on our society, a community where this view on death is to move away from it, put it off, and consequently, a place which is impossible to represent.
The personal style of David Aguilar’s cinema can be seen in Mara Mara, sensorial and impulsive, far from big production cinema. This liberty of movement seen in his films gives an intimate experience to the spectator. Stories where reality and fiction bind together to form something new, textural film and sound.
