North American Premiere
Legendary Argentine novelist and filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky travels to Entre Ríos, the province of the farming community where his father was born, in an attempt to learn more about him. With stunningly composed photography, Cozarinsky unearths and nimbly connects the experiences of his Russian-Jewish émigré grandparents, his father’s naval travels, and his own exile in Paris during the country’s military junta. Despite encountering relics from the past—some personal, some communal—the director embraces the traces of what remains and what has been lost to time, never to be reclaimed, yielding a richly perceptive cine-letter and an essential film for anyone who has lost a loved one too soon.
