Kala azar describes of a place that cannot sustain animal life any longer. In a big city somewhere in the south of Europe, a couple takes care of dead animals and abandoned roadkill as an act to give meaning to their life. Kala azar is a meditation on the paradox of life-circles among beings of different species. A film about existence, on the boundaries between living and dead, human and non-human.

"In a desolate, perhaps post-apocalyptic landscape, people and their dogs, cats, and fish coexist harmoniously. A young couple works for a crematorium, paying house calls to people who have lost their pets. As they give animals respectful send-offs, their own relationship fractures." - Mubi
