From Lisandro Alonso, the award-winning director of Juaja.
A sailor, Farrel, leaves his ship and begins a lengthy journey to wintry Tierra del Fuego's interior, to an isolated village and family that he hasn't seen in years. The route seems familiar to him, and we gradually piece together his relationship with the people and community he finds there. From the opening sequences on Farrel's ship, to the spectacular harshness of his destination, Alonso is meticulous in mapping the sights and sounds of the landscape and Farrel's personal journey into the past.
Heralded at film festivals around the world, Liverpool has established Lisandro Alonso as one of contemporary cinema's most acclaimed and exciting filmmakers.
