Synopsis: Cor is a choreographic film shot in Lanzarote that features a tribe of enigmatic dancers with faces marked with symbols ready to pluck the sky. In a frantic race towards elsewhere, they will unite in a trance that will allow them to leave a form of reality. This trance is like a heartbeat and a jerky breath. This lung is the engine that gives the impulse to “the unhooked jump” to leave only bodies and cries.
