In Guaraní and Spanish with English subtitles
A heartfelt story, Guaraní follows fisherman Atilio as he travels with his granddaughter Iara to Buenos Aires. His great desire is to have a grandson to transmit the Guaraní culture. When he discovers that Iara’s mother, Helena, is pregnant, he decides to go on a long journey and cross borders, with the aim to convince Helena to give birth in the Guarani land.
Part road movie and part coming-of-age drama, the film portrays two generations of Paraguayans whose views of the world seem centuries apart. The long journey will make Atilio and Iara understand the real meaning of traditions and family bonds.Presented by Prof. Sandra Castro, Adelphi University.
