In this film, Christina Rosenvinge is Karen Blixen (better known as Isak Dinesen), a free and adventurous woman who is the author of the extraordinary famous Out of Africa. María Pérez Sanz builds an intimate, elegant and delicate portrait of Blixen’s recent times in Africa through vignettes of crystalline light punctuated by the music of Rosenvinge herself. Especially the particular relationship between Karen and her Somali servant Farah Aden: a friendship ahead of their time, in which those differences that seem unsolvable (a European woman in a position of power and an African man) are dissolved against an ancestral understanding.
