Current project status: COMPLETED

Pablo Lamar / Feature Narrative / Paraguay, Netherlands, Chile, Qatar / 2015 / 76 min / Colour / Original Language: (none) / Interests: Drama


Evangelina and Amancio, an elderly couple, live out their lives on an isolated hill. Evangelina has been ailing for a very long time. On this particular night, Amancio quietly accompanies her, with words and with whispers – with silence – through the dark hours until the break of day; the moment of her death. Now utterly alone, Amancio takes charge of the various tasks required for her burial. His actions are gradually infused with the power of ritual, as he comes to embrace solitude and loss.
