Synopsis

Over forty years ago Marcel fled from Spain to avoid military service. He found his paradise in Latin America, in the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest, where he lives as a shaman practising mystical rituals, often in the company of young travellers escaping from hectic Western civilisation. The film, like his deeply sensory ceremonies, is played out in a hypnotic rhythm, almost without words.

Biography

Mexican director Pedro González-Rubio (1976) made Icaros as a part of a loose trilogy exploring the spiritual relationship between humankind and nature. The other two films are Alamar (2008) and Inori (2012).
