Ana and Fernando have promised to take their two children, Lucia (10) and Manuel (7), to the beaches of northern Chile over along weekend. In the back of the car, time is whiled away in playful naivety, while in the front, tensions surface. The forced intimacy of the car’s interior set against vast Chilean landscapes reiterates and magnifies the claustrophobic isolation in a tale of innocence and loss.
"This is a striking, laudably unshowy debut... Sotomayor's restrained approach to performances and her fine understanding of the impact of figures in a landscape, suggest a talent to watch"
