Rubén is a gruff and melancholy truck driver transporting a cargo of Acacia logs from Paraguay to Buenos Aires. He’s agreed to let a young woman, Jacinta, ride with him, but when she shows up with an infant child he is none too pleased, and they cross the border in an uncomfortable silence. Gradually, in the course of their journey, Rubén’s tough demeanor begins to thaw. First the adorable baby tugs at his heartstrings; then, in spite of himself, he starts to form a hesitant trust and a gentle, caring connection with the quietly dignified Jacinta, as they glimpse subtle hints of each other’s pasts. Director Pablo Giorgelli shows a remarkable confidence and mastery in his debut feature, allowing his story and characters to come to life simply and organically, with thoughtful but unshowy camera work by Diego Poleri. Giorgelli draws rich and lovingly-rendered performances from his outstanding leads German de Silva and Hebe Duarte, who evoke volumes of subtext with small gestures, inflection and body language. Winner: Camera D’Or, Cannes Film Festival

Director Pablo Giorgelli is expected to attend both the 1/10 and 1/11 screenings.
