(Ciro Guerra / 2004 / Argentina / 90 minutes / unrated)

Colombia's 2004 award-winning and bid for the Foreign Language Oscar 'La Sombra del Caminante' is Ciro Guerra's disquieting parable of a silent, goggle-wearing silletero (someone who carries a chair decorated with flowers) on the streets of Bogota, who scrapes a pittance carrying passenger Mañe, a middle-aged amputee in a roughly hewn seat on his back.

"Taking the hitherto tired 'odd couple' concept to alien new heights, the two gradually form a wary friendship. However, in a twist as David Lynchesque as the all-pervading air of dark portent, a shared secret begins to emerge that could sever their fragile bond." (Mark Powell, Metro)

Jaw-droppingly quirky and utterly absorbing from start to finish, The Wandering Shadows is Cubo Latin Film Fest closing & celebratory experience. Can't be missed!
