Corvo, the smallest island in the archipelago of the Azores, is the westernmost point of Europe, a tiny speck of land in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, dominated by the immense crater of a volcano, and inhabited by a single village of 440 people. Accompanied only by his soundman/composer Didio Pestana, filmmaker Goncalo Tocha spent several years journeying back and forth between mainland Portugal and Corvo. Fueled by the impossible, quixotic desire to create an exhaustive record of the island and its inhabitants - their landscape, their daily lives, their industry, their pursuits, their stories, their memories - Tocha has created a poetic yet richly detailed portrait of a uniquely isolated community, one that has existed for 500 years but has rarely been documented. Combining anthropological records, literature, lost archives, and mythological and autobiographical stories, IT'S THE EARTH NOT THE MOON is a beautiful and astoundingly engrossing chronicle of a civilization stranded in the middle of the sea.
