Special Presentation; U.S. Premiere. Both screenings preceded by a recorded introduction by filmmaker Claudia Llosa.


Oscar®-nominated Peruvian filmmaker Claudia Llosa (ALOFT, THE MILK OF SORROW) adapts acclaimed Argentine writer Samanta Schweblin's haunting eco-thriller with this beguiling semi-ghost story set in a remote community in rural Argentina, co-produced by Chile's Pablo Larraín (EMA, JACKIE, THE CLUB and upcoming Princess Diana biopic SPENCER). Amanda (Spanish actress María Valverde, THE WEAKNESS OF THE BOLSHEVIK) is a young mother taken mysteriously ill while vacationing with her small daughter Nina (Guillermina Sorribes Liotta) in a sleepy Argentine farming town. As she battles her debilitating sickness, a child named David (Emilio Vodanovich) questions her about the events that led to her bewildering condition. As the story of Amanda, Nina, David and his mother Carola (Argentinian actress Dolores Fonzi, PAULINA, TRUMAN) unfurls, Llosa explores looming environmental and spiritual catastrophes, the enigma of motherhood and the ties that bind us all.
