Directed by Francisco Varone

Argentina 2015 92 mins.

Varone’s warm and funny South American road trip opens up a world of understanding between two strangers. Unemployed and adrift, Sebas decides to become a private driver almost on a whim. When an elderly client, Jalil, offers him a large sum to drive him to La Paz, Sebas can’t refuse and the two set off on an epic 2,000 mile, life-changing journey. Jalil is a devout Muslim, something that initially makes Sebas very uncomfortable, but little by little life on the road brings the two men closer together.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
