International Panorama: Bolivia

A tender, quietly moving and poetic slice-of-life set in rural Bolivia concerning an elderly couple coming to terms with climate change and declining health.

In Detail

In the arid Bolivian highlands, an elderly Quechua couple has been living a tranquil life for years. While he takes their small herd of llamas out to graze, she keeps house and walks for miles with the other local women to fetch precious water.

When an uncommonly long drought threatens everything they know, Virginio and Sisa must decide whether to stay and maintain their traditional way of life or admit defeat and move in with family members in the city.

Writer-director Alejandro Loayza Grisi assembles this in a documentary style, creating a sharp evocation of the local culture.

It's a gorgeous slice of life with properly momentous undertones.
