Agua Fría de Mar
A young, well-to-do Costa Rican couple, Rodrigo (30) and Mariana (21), are looking for accommodation in the middle of the night at the coast of the Pacific Ocean where they will spend the New Year’s holiday. In the dark they find the seven-year-old Karina who has run away. Karina camps together with her parents – and many other families – on the beach at a nature park. The couple decide to look further the next morning. When they wake up, the girl is gone.
Fábrega’s debut film has produced an atmospheric, subtle and original film about the position of two women of different ages, from different social classes. Their lives cross each other for a moment, at a time when they both seem isolated and trapped, in an environment full of threat. The title refers to the cold current through which numerous poisonous sea snakes from the ocean visit the beach.
