THE DISTANCE OF TIME

LA DISTANCIA DEL TIEMPO

OFFICIAL_SELECTION_RAINDANCE_LAUREL_BLK.png

SYNOPSIS

In a Peruvian city corroded by an eternal and indifferent winter, an androgynous man with indigenous roots reaches the depths of abandonment as his lover tries to survive an unknown disease and his memories fade into oblivion and sorrow.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

This is the force of identity overcoming the silent oppression of a city and its inhabitants. A story that encounters sorrow and love as the sea gently touches the shore in the distance.

 

I believe in cinema as a form of power; a voice that goes beyond silence and darkness. Because, in those places where it is least expected, there is hope. This film seeks to be a call to togetherness, a means to acknowledge the emptiness we carry inside, and above all, to understand the weight of our existence within the end of life.
