Santa Ana

Santa Ana

After Tramuntana, a film about the famed the Tramuntana wind in the Mediterranean sea, César Pesquera (director) and Christian Lopez (art director) teamed up with Kako Mendez (writer) in order to make a second film about winds, in this case the Santa Ana winds.

This time literary references are combined with classic cinema references resulting in a film, part documentary, part art-film, that aims to elucidate the link between evil and the famed Santa Ana winds.

The Santa Ana winds are extremely dry down-slope winds that originate inland and affect coastal Southern California and northern Baja California.
