Synopsis

During the 2020 lockdown, Lucrecia Martel returns to her home in Salta, Argentina’s most conservative region. Here she follows singer Julieta Laso who introduces her to a group of women musicians and defiant people who exchange glances, songs, and opinions around a fire.

Our take

Turning to the grounding powers of nature and artistic solidarity, Lucrecia Martel’s documentary short carves a soulful reprieve from the uncertainties of the outside world. Vibrating through the woodlands of Salta, songs of freedom and resistance create a sonic haven against conservative doctrines.
