Deep within the arid Bolivian highlands, elderly Quechua couple Virginio and Sisa live a simple life among their precious llamas. When their grandson Clever arrives intent on moving them to the city, they are faced with uprooting all they have known or perishing in their ancestral home — an inevitability precipitated by an unusually long drought. Alejandro Loayza Grisi's urgent feature debut grapples with environmental collapse, filial duty and the eternal struggle between tradition and modernity — told through intoxicating widescreen imagery lensed by veteran cinematographer Bárbara Alvarez. Winner, Grand Jury Prize, World Cinema Dramatic Competition, 2022 Sundance Film Festival. DIR/SCR Alejandro Loayza Grisi; PROD Marcos Loayza, Federico Moreira, Santiago Loayza Grisi. Bolivia/Uruguay/France, 2022, color, 87 min. In Spanish and Quechua with English subtitles. NOT RATED
