Utama (English Subtitles)
In the Bolivian highlands, an elderly Quechua couple has been living the same daily life for years. During an uncommonly long drought, Virginio and Sisa face a dilemma: resist or be defeated by the environment and time itself.
‘The Bolivian writer-director Alejandro Loayza Grisi has a background in still photography, and it shows. He has a feel for the drama of colour, form, scale, and light, as well as a sensitive collaborator in his cinematographer, Bárbara Alvarez… With a lucid eye and a steady camera, he captures the region’s brutal beauty, using stark contrasts—like birds-eye views of isolated houses and people—to accentuate its extremes.’—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
