Caught up in a world of wild cosmic conspiracy theories and claims of visits from aliens, mild-mannered José Manuel finds himself tasked with evoking an ancient prophecy in this dark comedy.

Capturing the aesthetics and reality of working class Spain with deadpan humour, The Sacred Spirit will delight fans of Asimov, Philip K Dick, Buñuel, Bresson, Roy Andersson and Almodóvar. Look out for one of the most epic, peculiar and emotional music scenes you’ve ever seen - featuring a techno-rumba version of The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’.

This screening will be followed by a live Zoom Q&A with Director Chema Garcia Ibarra.

Screening as part of CinemaAttic’s ADRIFT, a film season bringing essential world cinema to Scotland.

A film of bewitching charms. At once supernatural and earth-bound. Playful and lacerating. Full of wonders.
