Directed by Louise Marie Beauchamp
Poetic fresco shot in the cold of Canada that expresses the difficulty for a migrant to tame a foreign territory. On J.-S. Bach’s Adagio in D minor, which he brilliantly interprets on the piano, the Guatemalan indigenous artist and farmer Salvador Chavajay tells us with simplicity and clairvoyance the recent forced exodus of workers from his country and offers his definition of the term’s poverty, wealth and conscience.
