"COMA (La cola del cometa/ The tail of the comet)" by Francisco Montoya Cázarez, 2015

Taking us on a trip across the solar system, we follow the trajectory of comet “67/P” as it approaches the perihelion: The closest point to the Sun in which a nebulous cloud of dust and gas known as “Coma” extends to thousands of kilometres. COMA (La cola del cometa/ The tail of the Comet) takes the shape of a space documentary film that explores a link between the movement of Cosmic Bodies and their cultural impact on Earth in association with catastrophic events such as Wars, Natural disasters and Epidemics .
