Main program

The Acacia Trees / Pablo Giorgelli

Rubén is a lonely truck driver who, for years, has been covering the same stretch of motorway between Asuncion and Buenos Aires, carrying wood. Today’s journey, however, will be different. His boss has arranged for him to have a passenger, Jacinta, who wants to go to Buenos Aires, where, with the help of relatives, she hopes to find work. Hacinta brings along her eight-month-old daughter, Anahí. Chilly, introverted Rubén, accustomed to the solitude of his cab, might be able to ignore an adult, but the little girl’s persistent gaze slowly eats away at his stoic armor. With Anahí bridging the gap between driver and passenger, Jacinta draws out information about Rubén’s past, gradually establishing a human connection they are both in need of.
