When the Earth Bleeds

When the Earth Bleeds

Man's last night of life. A woman almost dead. A strange village. A plague that brings out the worst in each of us.

Man's last night of life. A woman almost dead. A strange village. A plague that brings out the worst in each of us.

During his last night of life, the man, consumed by despair, tries to heal his Woman and protect his Son from a deadly plague that has been plaguing the village where they live.

'When Earth Bleeds' tells the story of Man, cursed to live, until the end of his life, immune to the plague that has so affected him. Unable to save his wife, who is fast approaching death's door, and afraid that her son will follow the same path, he leaves his home in search of help and wanders through a village that is not governed by normal.

It is a chaotic journey through empty, dark fields, lit by fire and succumbed to despair. A destroyed church, whose streaks of hope fade into change now used to power a Slot Machine that hangs there. Large stakes that await the bodies to be hung there, cursed to burn, so that the earth does not suffer the evils of humans.

At the heart of our film are themes that move away from the plague. We want to explore a story about despair and how it affects each one, in this case, Man. It will be a tense film, from start to finish, and hopefully it will be loaded with feeling, and it will impact whoever sees it.

If you like horror, the surreal, a film that takes a simple premise and turns it inside out and counts it with an original approach, this is the film for you. It's a frantic, mind-boggling journey, desperate to be told and seen by many people - and for that, we need your help.

It is a project whose complexity requires that we have monetary support so that we can carry it out.

'When A Land Bleeds' has a group of young people who have the will and an immense desire to tell stories. We are in the development phase of the project and in order to move on to the production phase (filming), we need to raise money. This is our dream, to make films, make us feel, and if you can help us to achieve that, it would mean everything to us. Any support and / or sharing will be a significant and impacting gesture, so we asked for your help.

About the author

The team of 'Onde A Terra Sangra' is made up of finalist students from the degree of Cinema, Video and Multimedia Communication and the degree of Science and Sound Technologies of the Lusophone University of Humanities and Technologies. Above colleagues, we are friends. We are people with a vision and a different look converging on a common goal.

We are a united team, with an enormous desire to tell this story. We hope that, above all, it will be a film that touches people, that makes them love the story, or that makes them hate, but that does not leave them indifferent. Because for us, this is not indifferent to us, and we have a lot to tell, a lot to make us feel.
