Chosen as one particular of 10 projects for the Global Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Competition, João Gonzalez’s “Ice Retailers” is a frigid and precarious tale about a father and son. As the title indicates, the pair sells the frozen content, even though to arrive at the market in the village under, they have to get their parachutes and leap from their cliff-facet residence every working day.

Surrealistic and bizarre eventualities and realities can be utilised as a metaphorical software to converse about something that is widespread to us in our far more ‘real’ actuality.”
