Cerro Quemado

Argentina | 2019 | documentary | 63 min. Documentary competition

One day, Micaela and her mother decide to visit the grandmother who lives in a remote village in the mountains, where she is the last resident. For three generations of Inca women, it will be an opportunity to meet again after many years. The camera contemplates their noble faces and a majestic landscape while their journey together through the mountains becomes a quest for their own identity. This atmospheric film about a return to the family roots also commemorates the dying culture and painful events from the history of the indigenous peoples of Argentina.
