Amancio and Evangelina are an elderly couple living on the hills. He is willing to accompany her in her deathbed.

Staying true to his short films, in which the topic of death and the rituals around it are a key, the first feature-length film by this talented director can be interpreted as a sharp reflection on the succession of small actions that conform a sent-off ritual that constructs and points at the divisive limit between life and death (which enables mourning). This is a radical stake with minimum narrative elements. Amancio has lived his entire life with his wife, Evangelina, in rural Paraguay, and he takes care of her until the last moment of her life. The morning when she’s no longer there sets the beginning of Amancio’s mourning. Lamar invites us to follow him closely and with no need for dialogues, with an absolute trust in the power of every shot. VB
