Washington, D.C.

THE GIFT OF PACHAMAMA (El regalo de la Pachamama) (Bolivia/ Japan, 2008, 102 min.) This is a spiritual docudrama set in Bolivia, where a 13-year-old boy lives a traditional life with his family near Uyuni, a salt lake. One spring, he goes with this father on his first caravan. With blocks of salt strapped to their herd of llamas, they travel “The Salt Trail” for several months, exchanging salt for other products of the Andes. He begins to learn who he is as a young man and a Quechua from their many experiences and encounters. As the trip comes to its close, he meets a beautiful girl at a festival in a sacred place of his people. The two young people feel a stirring in their hearts as they share a simple but profound dream: to ride a bicycle together across the salt lake. By the end, he discovers what his grandfather means by “The Gift of Pachamama.”
Directed by: Toshifumi Matsushita.
