  10. La Soledad

    Jorge Thielen Armand / International, Narrative / Canada, Italy, Venezuela / 2016 / Drama / 90 mins
    Handyman José lives with his family in La Soledad, a ramshackle villa located in what was once among Caracas’ most affluent neighborhoods. After learning that the villa’s owners are planning to sell the estate, José seeks any solution that might keep his six-year-old daughter from growing up in Caracas’ crime-sodden slums. Might that fabled treasure supposedly hidden in La Soledad’s walls offer José’s family a chance at a better life? “La Soledad” (d. Jorge Thielen Armand), from Venezuela, is an arresting blend of documentary and narrative feature, in which the actual participants in a real-life drama become players in the drama. The story of a family forced to uproot from their home shows rigorous commitment for the metaphysics of place and a compositional instinct that never quits." -Mick LaSalle, SFGate
