Las Acacias

Available on DVD, Blu-ray & Download

Winner of the Sutherland Award at the BFI London Film Festival, alongside several awards at Cannes Film Festival (including the prestigious Camera Dā€™Or), Pablo Giorgelliā€™s critically-acclaimed road movie rightly singled him out as ā€˜one to watchā€™.

With pitch-perfect performances from character actor German de Silva and newcomer Hebe Duarte, Las Acacias tells the story of a long distance lorry driver (German de Silva) who agrees to drive a woman (Hebe Duarte) and her 5-month-old child en route from Paraguay to Buenos Aires. A subtle and tender road movie exploring loneliness and the pain of loss, this striking debut grows into a searingly poignant tale about a passing encounter between two strangers and the unlikely bond that grows between them
