"Heartfelt without ever becoming sentimental, The Wind Journeys has a pure and honest simplicity that makes it wonderfully compelling."
– Diana Sanchez, Toronto Int'l Film Festival

Synopsis

For most of his life, Ignacio traveled the villages of Colombia, playing songs on his accordion, a legendary instrument said to have once belonged to the devil. He eventually married and settled in a small town, leaving his nomadic life behind. But after the death of his wife, he vows to never play the cursed accordion again and embarks on one last journey to return the instrument to its proper owner. On the way, Ignacio is followed by Fermín, a feisty teenager determined to become his apprentice. Tired of solitude, Ignacio accepts him as his pupil and together they traverse the vast Colombian terrain. Hardened by a life of loneliness, Ignacio tries to discourage Fermín from following in his footsteps, but destiny has other plans for them.

This is a very well-done and moving film, with some incredible music. I highly recommend it!


Lenny from Chicago - Customer Review
Loved this movie! Especially the homage to 8 Mile, when the duelling accordianists do battle, complete with insults! The ending left me wondering a bit though. What was in the note the master left Ignacio? Was it a plea to take care of his wife and brood? Or to continue playing the 'devil's instrument'? I LOVE Film Movement!

I love the cinematography of "The Wind Journeys". There's a new environment in every scene. That way everything seems fresh and wonderful. I enjoyed the story of a man's journey to return the accordion to its master (and a young man tags along with him). Does anyone know of a dueling accordion competition going on? I might show up!

MADEINUSA
Directed by Claudia Llosa
YEAR 5 FILM 2
Madeinusa is a sweet-faced 14-year-old girl who lives in a dirt-floor house and dreams of the world beyond the village. It is the custom of her town that from Good Friday at three in the afternoon through Easter Sunday, sin does not exist. On the eve of this time of small-town debauchery, Salvador, a young geologist from Lima, accidentally comes to town. The town greets him with curiosity and ire, then imprisons him out of fear that he will interfere with the festivities. But Madeinusa, ever curious about things from the big city, is drawn to him, and her fate begins to turn unexpectedly as she awakens to new experiences of love, lust and sexuality.

His violin playing charms the army captain, who orders Plutarco to come back daily. With tension escalating sky-high, guns and music take on a near holy significance with hundreds of lives hanging in the balance.

FOUND MEMORIES
Directed by Julia Murat
YEAR 10 FILM 6
Like every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio's old coffee shop. Like every day, she crosses the railways where no trains have passed for years; she cleans up the gate of the locked cemetery, and listens to the priest's sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villagers. Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer who is arriving in the ghost village of Jotuomba, where time seems to have stopped. A deep relationship is forged between the two women, which gradually builds to have a profound effect on both of their lives, as well as the rest of the villagers.
