Movie Info

A cameraman and a soundman arrive in Corvo in 2007, the smallest island in the archipelago of the Azores. Right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Corvo is a large rock, 6km high and 4km long, with the crater of a volcano and a single tiny village of 440 people. Gradually, this small filming crew is accepted by the island's population as its new inhabitants, two people to add to a civilization almost 500 years old, whose history is hardly discernible, such is the lack of records and written memories. Shot at a vertiginous pace throughout a few years, self‐produced between arrivals, departures and coming‐backs, It's the Earth not the Moon develops as the logbook of a ship, and turns out as a patchwork of discoveries and experiences, which follow the contemporary life of a civilization isolated in the middle of the sea. -- (C) Official Sitemore

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Through fourteen headed chapters, Tocha catalogues every strata of island life, often in captivating images-the reflection of the village in a rheumy eye, moonglow on the harbor.

Though often random in its organization - Mr. Tocha slides from contemplative seascapes and misty meadows to a slaughterhouse and the Corvo landfill - this portrait is still much more than a snapshot.

As a memento mori, It's the Earth feels a little lost in space.

Top Critic

After 30 minutes or so, Gonšalo Tocha's anthropological proposition slides into dubiousness.

Slant Magazine

What emerges is a picture of a place where much history has been lost, often deliberately, but where the residents, though mindful of their past are always looking to the future.
