Salamandra
Filmfest 2008

Argentina after the dictatorship. Six-year-old Inti has been living with his grandmother when Alba returns to drag him away on a crazy trip to a legendary valley in Patagonia. In the heart of a small town, outsiders from the four corners of the world live at the late Dr. Schulz’s place, among his old instruments, his insect collections and a multitude of animals. At the foot of the mountains, peasant children have fun destroying a school under construction or attacking the houses of new residents at night. Between these two impossible worlds, Alba tries to live a "normal life" with Inti. She clings to her hopes and illusions, Inti to his survival kit.
