Miguel Hilari

2014 | 54 minutes | Bolivia

U.S. Premiere

Director Miguel Hilari documents his return to his father’s Andean village, Santiago de Okola, which he visited briefly as a child and where his only remaining relative is his uncle. The resulting film is a subtle and deeply personal meditation on the regrets of exile and the fading of culture. Hilari uses his position as part outsider to cast a sharp eye on the campesinos, alternating between criticism and contemplation as his camera observes schoolchildren singing songs of Quechua and Aymara independence, teenagers tending animals, and people going about their daily routines. At once unsettling and beautiful, The Corral and the Wind convincingly captures one individual’s complicated search for a place among his own people.
