Synopsis

The European Union has just imposed a new regulation on the number of inhabitants allowed on Atava Island (autonomous community of Spain). This mirrors a similar debacle that occurred there in the past when the female shaman introduced a rule that only 49 members of the tribe could live on the island. ‘Atavism’ tells the story of this similar challenge in the same place, but told in different timelines with the resultant different cultural contexts. The people of the island fight between PRIMITIVISM and HUMANISM as they confront various situations in this provocative drama. ‘Atavism’ is an eco-ethno horror spiced with a large portion of black humour.
