Synopsis

Filmed on an abandoned fishermen village of Northern Qatar, ‘And Then They Burn the Sea’ is an ode to the filmmaker’s living mother whose memories abruptly left her during the making of the film. Al-Remaihi ruminates on an experience of familial loss of that which cannot be defined but is deeply felt by pairing existing family archives with reenacted dreams. Weaving a myriad of poetry, folk history, and personal archives, the film mirrors a history of maternal mourning rituals that lament their loved ones who may never be returned by the sea.
