LAND AND SHADE

DIRECTOR: César Agusto Acevedo - COLOMBIA

“A poetic and devastating statement on how environmental issues impact every aspect of life, César Augusto Acevedo’s Camera d’Or–winning (Best First Feature) directorial debut is not to be missed. The elderly Alfonso (Haimer Leal) returns to the small house in Valle del Cauca he left 17 years earlier in order to care for his bedridden son Geraldo (Edison Raigosa), who suffers from a mysterious ailment related to the harsh farming techniques of the sugar-cane plantations around them. Tensions quietly simmer between Alfonso and his ex-wife (the wonderful Hilda Ruiz), but familial ties and pride keep them tied to the land in Acevedo’s meditative and painterly allegory.”—Film Society of Lincoln Center. (94 mins.)

Filmography: Los hongos (2014)
