El atraco / The Heist
Horizontes Selection

Bolivia. The late 80s. A truck carrying a consignment of cash (the wages of thousands of miners) is attacked and robbed mid-Andean altiplano. The amount of the haul gives even the bandits the surprise of their lives. A confused investigation is launched amid serious cries of ineptitude, corruption and protection by the police themselves. Adolfo, an intelligent and honest detective, makes his own parallel research into the situation, following the robbers closely; his intuition tells him that there?s someone else behind the hoist, someone very powerful, someone more redoubtable than the robbers themselves.
Born in Cremona (Italy), but has been living in Bolivia since 1976. He studied Political and Economic Sciences at Milan State University, and Script and Directing at the Civica Scuola del Cinema in the same city. Having worked as an assistant director, he made his first short in 1979, Hilaro Condori. His first feature, Mi socio (My Friend, 1982), won several prizes at the Cartagena and Havana Festivals, Abriendo brecha (1984), won the Silver Dove for Best Documentary at Leipzig and El día que murió el silencio (The Day Silence Died, 1998) was chosen Best Film of the Decade in Bolivia.
