Fantastic Journey

When: Fri., April 24 2015

Following a father and a daughter in 1882 as they journey from Denmark to the remote wilds of Patagonia, Jauja is a new “Western” from Lisandro Alonso. Alonso is the acclaimed Austrian director of Liverpool and Los Muertos. When his 15-year-old daughter runs off, Gunnar Dinesen (Viggo Mortensen) must journey deeper into the South American wilderness to find her. The film meditates on colonialism and civilization vs. barbarianism as Dinesen goes on a journey to not only find his daughter but also himself. Jauja plays tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque at 9:20 p.m. with another showing Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $9. (Harp)
