NEW YORK PREMIERE In this gem of minimalist and poetic magnetism, filmmaker Oskar Alegría and adorable donkey Paolo embark on a journey to bring provisions to the last shepherd of the Andia Mountains. Retracing the seasonal route his grandfather made with his flock, Alegría collects a trove of memories from a disappearing world, embodied in sounds and degraded silent images captured with his father’s Super-8 camera. Ancient songs, sounds, and encounters chart a way of life mostly forgotten. – Ruth Somalo
