Right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Corvo is a large rock, 6km high and 4km long, with the crater of a volcano and a single tiny village of 440 people. Gradually, this small filming crew is accepted by the island's population as its new inhabitants, two people to add to a civilization almost 500 years old, whose history is hardly discernible because of the lack of records and written memories. Shot at a vertiginous pace throughout a few years, It's the Earth Not the Moon develops as the logbook of a ship and turns into as a patchwork of discoveries and experiences, which follow the contemporary life of a civilization isolated is the middle of the sea. A long Atlantic film-odyssey, divided in 14 chapters, that combines anthropological records, literature, lost archives, mythological and autobiographical stories. (Goncalo Tocha Films) Expand
