Lisandro Alonso


Edition 2023
140' - 2023 - Drama - Dialogue: Portuguese, English, Portuguese, English
Director: Lisandro Alonso With: Viggo Mortensen, José María Yazpik, Chiara Mastroianni
Argentine director Lisandro Alonso is back with another delightful sample of quirky slow cinema.
Alaina is tired of being a police officer in the Pine Ridge Reservation, and decides to stop answering her radio. Her niece Sadie spends a long night waiting for her, to no avail. Hurt, she decides to begin her journey with the help of her grandfather: she will fly through time and space to South America, finally she will stop watching old black and white westerns that do not represent her in any way, and everything will feel different when she hears the dreams of other people, those who live in the forest. But there will be no definitive conclusions... Birds don't talk to humans, yet if only we could understand them, they would surely have a few truths to tell us.
"Metamorphoses, mud and madness abound in Lisandro Alonso's latest, an exploration of links between global indigenous groups. (...) Eureka is a heady, thought-provoking and often beautiful experience, artistic minimalism at its most elasticated and textured." - Cineuropa
