Encina’s debut feature – the first Paraguayan film in three decades – follows a bickering elderly couple from dawn to dusk, as they tend their smallholding in the forest and await their son’s return from war. The void left by their child is palpable, and painful. Set in the 1930s, this is nevertheless a timeless contemplation of mortality and memory, realised through painterly compositions, austere storytelling and fine, unmannered performances.
