Product Description

{WINNER! Special Jury Award, Torun Int'l Film Festival 2010}

{WINNER! Best Cinematography, Lucania Film Festival 2010}

{WINNER! Grand Prix, 30th Virton Festival of European Cinema 2009}

High in the majestic Andes of Peru, silent but deadly traces of mercury -- remnants of long-ago silver mining -- bring illness and death to a local village. Seeking retribution, the villagers mistakenly attribute the outbreak to Western doctors who work in the nearby mountains; violence ensues, and a doctor is killed.

'Altiplano' is the story of two women: Saturnina, the fiance of a villager killed by mercury poisoning; and Grace, a shell-shocked war photographer who is also the wife of the dead doctor. As Grace sets out on a journey of mourning to the place of her husband's death, Saturnina takes drastic action to protest the endless violations against her people and her land. As their destinies merge, this lyrical and probing film explores our divided but inextricably linked world.

Review

FILLED WITH MYTHIC STYLE AND MAGICAL THINKING. Undeniably gorgeous and frequently stunning! --The New York Times

GORGEOUS! The filmmakers conjure haunting, achingly beautiful visions. Stunning and quietly surreal. --National Public Radio

A MASTERFUL, BRILLIANT FILM! Each stunning shot is composed like an individual work of art....an unparalleled cinematic experience that is nothing short of breathtaking! It melds Bergman and Fellini with Kubrick and Solanas, resulting in an unforgettable portrait of love and loss, faith and fate. --This Week in New York
