Rubén is a lonely, middle-aged truck driver who has been hauling timber from Asunción, Paraguay to Buenos Aires for years. But the journey he’s about to make today will be different. At the behest of his boss, he is to pick up Jacinta—who arrives with Anahí, her eight-month-old daughter—and take them to a new life in Argentina. Used to his solitary journey, he is not looking forward to the company. But as the miles go by, despite their difficulties in communicating, they come to know each other until, arriving at their destination, both share the same desire: they don’t want the journey to end. Giorgelli’s poignant film was the winner of the Camera d’Or for Best First Feature at the Cannes Film Festival and the Premio Horizontes Prize for Best Latin American Film at the San Sebastián International Film Festival. (85 mins.)

First Feature.


Interests: New Directors, Spanish Language.
