A group of four young people travel in a van through deserted jungle towns, carrying an inflatable film screen and the necessary equipment to screen films in remote places in the country.
Four friends, a truck, an inflatable projection screen, and a will to screen independent cinema in small towns in the Peruvian Amazon: these are the few pieces that form the plot structure of this road movie. There are, of course, footnote comments about film watching in deserted areas, and the possibility of creating places that dribble from the multiplex logic. But these are merely tangential direction in a film that expresses joy and vitality, transforming this romantic, cinephile adventure into a delicate epic story about friendship. Alone looks too much like the MDMA “trip” the characters take in the middle of the jungle. And it proves putting your energy into personal dreams is always worth it, even if it’s just to enjoy the ride. EDB
