Storyline

Evaristo and Luis Antonio - indigenous brothers from the SierraTarahumara in northwest Mexico - have just graduated from boarding elementary school. Evaristo desires to continue his education, leading a bicultural life, where the Tarahumara, or Raramuri as they call themselves, have the opportunity to keep learning to speak, read and write in Spanish, the Mexican official language. Meanwhile Luis Antonio "Tony" is very happy to be done with school. Even though he is a smart kid and has won a grant to move on to high school, he prefers to live life in the ranch, where the kids grow up at a very young age. One morning the brothers are sent to deliver some medicine to a far away community. Tony asks their grandfather for permission to take his horse but the answer is no. Nevertheless, he decides to take it, even if Evaristo is not convinced. They take a wrong path that leads them to a narrow and deep canyon. The horse cannot go on so the boys tie it around a tree. When they come back for... Written by Venice Film Festival

Combining endlessly charming performances by real-life / Cine Vegas
22 September 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Combining endlessly charming performances by real-life brothers Evaristo and Antonio Lerma Batista with beautiful Tarahumara landscapes, COCHOCHI captures a simpler world seemingly unaffected by modern times.

One young Tarahumara brother is thrilled to be in elementary school and learning new subjects in Spanish. The other wants to drop out and return to the family ranch, where traditional Tarahumara ways prevail. When their grandfather asks them to take medicine across the mountains to another town on his horse, the brothers lose the horse and then each other, setting them off on different adventures through Sierra Tarahumara communities.

The brothers Batista turn in realistic and intelligent performances that break the clichés of child actors, which lend the film itself an undeniable realism. Through this story of two brothers, debut directors Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán make an engaging film that, in spite of its modest means, records an indigenous community under change without the critical eye of outside analysis.
