O Corno

Directed by Jaione Camborda

Illa de Arousa, Galicia, 1971. Maria earns a living harvesting shellfish in her closeknit island community that follows ancient rhythms; she is also known for helping other women in childbirth with special dedication and care. But after an unexpected tragedy, she is forced to flee the island and sets out on a dangerous journey along a smuggler’s route to Portugal, searching for freedom from the rigid control exerted over women and their bodies in the Franco dictatorship era.

Jaione Camborda’s second featurewinner of the Golden Shell for Best Film at the 2023 San Sebastian International Film Festival, as well as the 2024 Goya for Best Newcomer Actress for Janet Novás – is a gripping tale of survival, which makes a huge impression right from the intense opening scene.
