Panquiaco, dir. Ana Elena Tejera, Panama 2020, 80 min., Portuguese and Dulegaya with English subtitles


Panama is not only a geographical space connecting Central and South America – it also offers a vantage point on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Less concerned with bodies of water than the terrains that separate them, Panamanian filmmaker Ana Elena Tejera’s Panquiaco is narratively divided between Portugal and Panama. Against this liminal backdrop, the film is a meditative exploration of one man’s return home after a lifetime away. Titled in memory of an indigenous man whose aid to Spanish explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa has long been forgotten, Panquiaco offers an unflinching reflection on the concept of home.
 
The screening is followed by a live Q&A with director Ana Elena Tejera, hosted by Festival curator Nico Marzano, on 27 November. You can join this event for free at 8:15pm GMT here.
