Salidas (Spanish, departures) is a fictional dance film that tells the story of the undertaker Giralda, who transports the deceased to the afterlife. Translated into the language of Spanish flamenco dance and set in an old East German ship lift, the film creates an associative fusion between northern and southern Europe, movement and silence, farewell and eternity.
