For most of his life, Ignacio traveled the villages of Colombia, playing songs on his accordion, a legendary instrument said to have once belonged to the devil. He eventually married and settled in a small town, leaving his nomadic life behind. But after the death of his wife, he vows to never play the cursed accordion again and embarks on one last journey to return the instrument to its proper owner. On the way, Ignacio is followed by Fermín, a feisty teenager determined to become his apprentice. Tired of solitude, Ignacio accepts him as his pupil and together they traverse the vast Colombian terrain. Hardened by a life of loneliness, Ignacio tries to discourage Fermín from following in his footsteps, but destiny has other plans for them. Nominated by Colombia to the 82nd Academy Awards. One of a series of films this spring by one of Colombia’s most celebrated filmmakers.
“Given little dialogue beyond his singing performances, gifted non-pro Martinez strongly inhabits a figure as tough and unyielding as the landscape, though in the grip of an unarticulated sorrow; Nunez has piercing moments as a young man trying to make something of himself.” – Justin Chang, Variety
The screening of LOS VIAJES DEL VIENTO is co-sponsored by the Department of Spanish & Portuguese at The University of Texas at Austin.
