The last film shot on La Palma before the 2021 volcano eruption, 8 Years explores the relationship of Jose and David — past lovers who reunite on the island where they first met. Will the island’s spirit be the flame that reignites their relationship? Or will their presence there reveal to Jose a troubling past, romanticised in the waters of time?
