LA SIRGA Trailer | Festival 2012


Fleeing the armed violence that has claimed her family, Alicia finds refuge at La Sirga, a rundown lakeside guesthouse owned by her taciturn uncle Óscar, the only relative she has left. There, amidst the sound of distant thunder, she tries to rebuild her life while the war she sought to escape inches closer. 90 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“A slow-burn Andean fable of considerable evocative power…” — Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
