The Parents

Martín Boulocq

Bolivia, Drama, 2011
73 min, RED/HD, Color/Black & White
Spanish with English subtitles


Toño sets off on a long journey back to his hometown in the south of Bolivia. Many years have passed since he was kicked out of his home, where things have now changed with his family. Mario, his adopted father, suffers from a crippling disease and cannot speak. Ana, with whom he shared his childhood and who was also his first love, is now a single mother with a 9-year-old boy. With silent characters, recurring dreams, long walks through the countryside, childhood friends with almost nothing in common, Los viejos is a film about absence and loneliness, banishment and abrupt separations, and, above all, it is a story about the attempt to reconcile with the past. Los viejos enjoyed its world premiere at Busan International Film Festival and continues on a successful festival run.
