Piedra sola
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Piedra sola, dir. Alejandro Telémaco Tarraf, Argentina / Mexico / Qatar / UK 2020, 82 min., Spanish and Quechua with English subtitles

Alejandro Telémaco Tarraf’s first feature unravels across the Puna, the highlands of the Argentinian North West, a bare landscape infused by ancestral forces and myths. While framing the daily hardships faced by Puna settlements with rigour and humbleness, Piedra sola goes beyond a mere observational approach, moving into the meanders of Andean cosmology and spirituality. Accompanying a native llama herder whose flock has been attacked by a puma, a central figure in the region’s culture and its way of living, Tarraf embarks on a devotional journey in search of those intertwined connections between individual and universal spheres of existence. 
The screening is followed by a live Q&A with director Alejandro Telémaco Tarraf and cinematographer Alberto Balasz, hosted by Festival curator Nico Marzano on 2 December. You can join this event for free at 8:15pm GMT here.
