Pachamama (2008)

Sobre o filme

At Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni (Salt Lake), where many families work with salt, a 13-year-old boy named Kunturi lives a traditional Quecha life with his family. His life begins to change when his grandmother dies, a friend moves away and his father takes him on his first trip with the llama caravan. For three months he travels the Ruta de la Sal, exchanging blocks of salt his father and other villagers have chipped from the lake, for other products of the Andes, the altiplano and the valleys. In the snow-covered peaks his father sacrifices Kunturi’s favorite llama. A thief is caught and exiled from a town. Kunturi sees his first armadillo. He learns from these and other experiences and encounters along the way. When the caravan arrives at its destination, the town of Macha where the Tinku Festival takes place, Kunturi’s life is changed even more deeply. There he finds Ulala, the most beautiful girl he could imagine. Kunturi and Ulala feel the stirrings of first love as they share the same dream: to run together across the immense white sea that is the Salar de Uyuni, until they reach the end of the horizon.
