Directed by filmmaker Lisandro Alonso, the fiction feature film competed in the Latin American Competition and is a co-production of Argentina, Portugal, Germany, France and Mexico.
The synopsis says that Alaina is tired of being a cop on the Pine Ridge reservation and decides not to answer her radio. His niece Sadie spent a long night waiting for him, without success.
Then he decides that he will start a journey with the help of his grandfather: he will fly through time and space to South America, and finally stop looking at the old black and white west that does not represent him and now listen to the dreams of other natives. who live in the Amazon rainforest.
This is Alonso’s first film outside of Argentina, and filming took place in various countries such as the United States, Spain and Mexico.
The cast is made up of well-known performers such as Viggo Mortensen and Chiara Mastroianni, and other characters found in castings open to non-professionals.
This is the appearance of Sadie LaPointe, a native woman who plays the young woman who lives on the Pine Ridge reservation, in South Dakota, United States, where one of the three parts that make up the story takes place, according to reviews published in previous film forums.
The film becomes another vindicatory story of the original cultures of America, built on the erosion of the logic of canonical realism.
It also celebrates magical thinking as an inseparable part of the ways of these people in the face of the colonialist European disaster, which destroys mythologies and knowledge with the same brutality of body and will of man, as shown on the festival billboard.
Accordingly, in the sample of works of fiction offered by the film event, risks and conventions, ruptures and stereotypes, freedom and conformity, movements and statistics are mixed.
The cinema of Latin America is expanding in all directions, describing many paths in everything, without following linear logic, accusing monotonies or stagnation.
