El Camino

Directed by Ishtar Yasín, Appearing in Person
Costa Rica 2007, 35mm, color, 90 min. Spanish with English subtitles

Ishtar Yasín’s haunting tale of two children fleeing their abusive father in a search for their barely remembered mother is one of the few feature films to emerge recently from Costa Rica. Yasín integrates semi-documentary footage with a narrative that adopts the dream logic of magic realism.
