Plot Sypnosis:

Few filmmakers can boast a body of work as outstanding, as beautiful or as mesmerizing as that of Pedro Costa (COLOSSAL YOUTH, IN VANDA'S ROOM, HORSE MONEY). This, his second feature, is an intriguing and voluptuous rethink of Jacques Turner's I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE. Leão (Isaach De Bankole) falls into a coma after an accident working on a construction site in Portugal. Arrangements are made for a young nurse, Mariana (Ines de Medeiros), to accompany him back to his home on the brooding Cape Verde islands. Strangely, no one recognizes him there and as she waits for someone to take responsibility for Leão or for him to regain consciousness, Mariana gradually becomes bewitched by the mysterious community and landscape of this unnerving volcanic isle. Never before released in the U.S. and now beautifully restored, CASA DE LAVA is an extraordinary, ravishing work.
