Part of the Documentaries Strand
Spanish-born Chico Pereira constructs a contemplative study of his uncle whose wonderful spirit of adventure belies all of his 73 years. Manolo likes to wander the countryside with his donkey and dog by his side, but what happens when, against all advice, he decides to tackle one last, mighty trek? Fascinated by the space between documentary and fiction, Pereira constructs the bones of a narrative around which Manolo’s story unfolds, but as the journey progresses, family bonds reignite, providing a means of catharsis for both men.
