Almacita di desolato

Felix de Rooy / NL, 1986 / 110 min.

After their first feature film Desiree (1984) set in New York, the Curaçao filmmakers Norman de Palm and Felix de Rooy returned to their native soil for Almacita di desolato. The story, rooted in local myths that award a major role to curses and spirits, must have been a bewildering experience for the average Dutch viewer at the time.
