Once upon a time there was a house in the middle of the sea where a woman melancholically played the cello as she waited. She was waiting for her lover, an artist who always wanted to be a sailor so that he could take to the seas with the jellyfish, the starfish and the multi-coloured species he dreamt of in his paintings. His fascination led him to set out on a journey to discover the thrilling beauty and mysteries of the depths, following which neither of the two were sure if they would meet again.
Miguelanxo Prado is artist from La Coruña. He is one of the best-known and important European comic authors. Ever since the early 80s, his work, including illustration, painting and conventional animation, has travelled the world. His over 30 books and comics have been translated into numerous languages and have garnered several awards. "De profundis" is not his first audiovisual experience, but follows his participation particularly in the "Men in Black" animation series.
