Synopsis : Alaina is tired of being a police officer in the Pine Ridge Reservation, and decides to stop answering her radio. Her niece Sadie spends a long night waiting for her, to no avail. Hurt, she decides to begin her journey with the help of her grandfather: she will fly through time and space to South America, finally she will stop watching old black and white westerns that do not represent her in any way, and everything will feel different when she hears the dreams of other people, those who live in the forest. But there will be no definitive conclusions... Birds don't talk to humans, yet if only we could understand them, they would surely have a few truths to tell us.

Lisandro Alonso

Born in Buenos Aires in 1975, Lisandro Alonso honed his filmmaking skills at the Universidad del Cine. His debut feature, "La Libertad," exploring the life of a solitary lumberjack, premiered at Cannes' Un Certain Regard. Alonso later established his production company, 4L. In 2004, he returned to Cannes with "Los Muertos" in the Directors Fortnight. Shifting toward fiction in 2008, "Liverpool" traced a young sailor's quest in Tierra del Fuego. "Jauja" (2014), set in 19th-century Denmark and Argentina, featuring Viggo Mortensen, earned the FIPRESCI award in Un Certain Regard at Cannes, solidifying Alonso's status as a renowned filmmaker.
