Los hijos del último jardín / Sons of the Last Garden
Horizontes Specials

The obscenity of stealing from a poverty-stricken people puts an end to the patience of an extremely pacific, tolerant man. Fernando is an idealist and, as such, has open veins when observing his society. Deceived by his militancy in the degraded left-wing, he finds no better solution than to take things into his own hands. The cynicism of a well-known politician who has become rich with the country?s money pushes him to act. The friends accompanying him on the adventure have other reasons and together they confront their values in an extreme situation which could show us the complex face of reality.
Born in La Paz (Bolivia), he studied Directing at Chile University?s Instituto Fílmico. On returning to Bolivia, he created the Ukamau group (?And so it is? in Aymara). Ukamau (1966) is also his first feature, presented at Cannes and recipient of the Young Directors Award. Having made a series of features garnering awards at festivals throughout the world, such as Yawar Mallku (Blood of the Condor, 1969) or El enemigo principal (The Principal Enemy, 1974), in 1989 La nación clandestina won the Golden Shell at the San Sebastian Festival. Para recibir el canto de los pájaros (To Hear the Birds Singing, 1995) won the Special Jury Prize at Locarno.
