Viajes: New Cinema from Spain and Latin America
Thursday, November 8, 2012 - 7:00pm

In this hauntingly melancholy film, a displaced geologist travels to the scrublands of the Sertão in northeast Brazil to assess possible routes for a water canal from the region’s only river. “As the fieldtrip progresses, it becomes clear that Renato shares something in common with the places he visits: emptiness, a sense of abandonment, and isolation. His geological research is slowly pervaded by a sensation of groundlessness, an incessant pining for his ex-wife, and a yearning to return home.” - Anthology
