Ana (Julieta Figueroa) lives in the isolated wilderness of Valdivia, south-central Chile. Here she ekes out a living working in the local convenience store and tending to her bedridden mother (Norma Norma Ortiz) in her spare time. The only other people she spends time with are her friend Verónica (Angélica Riquelme) and Verónica’s severely depressed sister, Marta (Mariana Muñoz). But when Ana loses her job she faces the challenge of a new job with the similarly solitary Toro (Pablo Krögh) and it proves an association that challenges both of them in very different ways.

From Chilean director José Luis Torres Leiva comes a striking study of solitude and melancholy set amidst a striking bleached landscape that both frames and ultimately defines the film’s protagonists. There is little exposition in The Sky, the Earth and the Rain, for it is ultimately left to the viewer to try and assemble the fragments of lives presented through the sparse narrative framework of the film. The result is a hauntingly beautiful study where landscape functions as a physical portrait of the characters’ inner moods and sound and light offer the greatest clues to the mysteries of the lives presented before us.
