Salvador del Solar,
Haunting story of love, life and survival in the forests of Peru.
Taking his cue from the lush and complex wilderness of Peru, the director surrounds the audience with profuse and fertile images & sounds that will live in memory forever after viewing this film. Time is neither linear not static in this movie; instead events and people pass one another connected merely by the bonds of memory or sensual beauty. This award-winning film from 1972 is as evocative and mesmerizing today as ever with a story that will remain true for as long as civilization competes with the natural world. See this in 35 mm if you can and allow yourself to be surrounded by The Green Wall.
