La Tierra y la Sombra (Land and Shade)
Thursday, April 07, 2016, 08:00pm - 10:00pm

Awarded the coveted Camera d'Or prize at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival as well as the France 4 Visionary Award, César Augusto Acevedo's superbly photographed feature debut offers a story of classic struggle and humanist themes beneath its luscious surface. With his estranged son critically ill, an old farmer returns after 17 years to the sugarcane fields of rural Colombia where the family and land he long ago abandoned have withered dramatically. As ash rains nightly all around them, the final throes of a family's fragile turmoil play out.
