REVIEW

MajorDocs is a festival with no submission fees, neither national nor regional. So, the fact that a film made by a Balearic filmmaker has made it into this year’s official competition shows the good health of the films produced in the Balearic Islands, and that on its own is a reason for joy.

Native Rock (‘Pedra Pàtria’) is a film that flows easily between the essay, the visual poem and the open letter. In this debut feature, Macià Florit bravely and calmly confronts the many questions accumulated over the years and the desire to understand from a free point-of-view the differences between the past and the present. Thus, he explores from exile the bitterness of uprooting while tracing the differences with his brother, Lau. How can two beings raised in the same family perceive, feel and long for things in such radically different ways?

The scenes of Native Rock are like waves: each one uniquely crashing against the shore, while seeking to describe from a microcosm of stones, land and sea, the great aspects of the existence of Humanity.

Florit manages to elevate Menorca from mere landscape to a full character. An island with as many layers as geological strata, an exploration of a personal story that comes from a subjective and serene nostalgia that never falls into sentimentality.
