César Augusto Acevedo
2015, Colombia-France-Netherlands-Chile-Brazil
97min / Digital

Alfonso is an old farmer who has returned home to tend to his son, who is gravely ill. He rediscovers his old house, where the woman who was once his wife still lives, with his daughter-in-law and grandson. The landscape that awaits him resembles a wasteland. Vast sugar cane plantations surround the house, producing perpetual clouds of ash. 17 years after abandoning them, Alfonso tries to fit back in and save his family. In Spanish with English subtitles.

WINNER: Caméra d'Or, 2015 Cannes Film Festival

"Cesar Acevedo's deliberately paced and distant-feeling debut works its way under audiences' skin, weaving a haunting allegory through painterly compositions." Variety
