DOK Leipzig 29 October – 4 November 2018
61st International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film
DOK Leipzig Film Festival



When you come to Penúmbria, stranger, take care! Because there’s nowhere else to go from here. Penúmbria is a fictitious place by the sea. The coast is rough, the clouds hang low over the horizon. Deep sadness drips from every crevice and the infrastructure collapsed a long time ago. The locals decided one day to just leave their community to the course of time. And one day we might say: earth is as uninhabitable as Penúmbria. A dystopia.
