Documentarian Pablo Giorgelli's confident narrative debut has traveled far on the film festival circuit, earning multiple awards. A unique, intimate take on road movie conventions, it plays like an extended conversation, as its two characters get to know one another over the course of their trip: truck driver Ruben (Germán de Silva), hauling lumber from rural Paraguay to Buenos Aires, and his passenger Jacinta (Hebe Duarte), moving to the city to start a new life with her adorable 5-month-old daughter. Camera D'Or Winner, 2011 Cannes Film Festival; Latin Horizons Award, 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival; Best Feature Debut, 2011 BFI London Film Festival.
DIR/SCR/PROD Pablo Giorgelli; SCR Salvador Roselli; PROD Ariel Rotter, Alex Zito. Argentina/Spain, 2011, color, 82 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
