WHAT THE WATERS LEFT BEHIND centres around Epecuén, one of the most important touristic villages of Argentina. Here, thousands of people would visit, attracted by the healing properties of its thermal waters. On November 10th 1985, a huge volume of water broke the protecting embankment and the village was submerged under ten meters of salt water. Thirty years later, the waters have receded exposing a bleak and deserted landscape. The residents never returned. However, a group of young filmmakers embark upon the ruins in order to film a documentary. Ignoring the warnings, they find themselves stranded in the abandoned village. Contrary to what they thought, they soon realise that they are not alone.
WHAT THE WATERS LEFT BEHIND has also been acquired for distribution in Japan, Germany, Scandinavia, Taiwan, Latin America, China, Benelux, Spain, Australia/NZ and Korea.
