Screening of the feature film:

Saudade | Saudade

Spanish with English Subtitles, Running time: 100min, Fiction
DIRECTOR: Juan Carlos Donoso Gomez 

Miguel is a 17 year-old boy that sees the future as a distant horizon, immersed in his bubble of friends and a sketchbook with sentimental drawings. “Saudade” is the portrait of a threshold: the end of high school, which we live through Miguel. His biological mother, whom he never met, asks his father to visit her in Buenos Aires upon finding herself gravely ill. The man goes without giving it a thought. The family crisis that this sudden voyage triggers and the economic deterioration of Ecuador in 1999 is the scenery on which Miguel will have to deal with the melancholy of seeing his world fall apart, so that he can invent one by on his own and start fending for himself.     

------------------------------------------

Miguel es un chico de 17 años que mira el futuro como un horizonte lejano; inmerso en su burbuja de amigos y un cuaderno de dibujos que lo acompaña mientras divaga entre calles y casas del Valle del los Chillos, un espacio que no termina de ser campo ni ciudad y es donde ha pasado toda su vida. “Saudade” es el retrato de un umbral: el fin del colegio y el verse volcado a la necesidad de crecer. Su madre biológica, a la que nunca conoció, les pide a su padre y a él que la visiten en Buenos Aires al verse gravemente enferma; el padre desempleado, acude sin pensarlo. La crisis familiar que desata este repentino viaje y el deterioro económico del Ecuador en 1999, es el escenario donde Miguel tendrá que lidiar con la melancolía de ver a su mundo venirse abajo, para en un futuro no muy lejano poder inventarse uno para sí mismo.
