73-årige Manuelo drömmer om att ta sig från Spanien till USA för att vandra Tårarnas väg som de tvångsförflyttade nordamerikanska indianstammarna en gång gjorde. Men han skulle aldrig göra det utan sin åsna Gorrion.
Manuelo lever i Andalusien tillsammans med sin älskade åsna Gorrion och sin trofasta hund Zafrana. Trots avrådan från såväl dotter som läkare bestämmer han sig för att åka över Atlanten för att göra den drygt 300 mil långa vandringen. Men det visar sig vara svårare än han trott att få med sig en åsna till USA och istället väntar en lång vandring genom Spanien. En väldigt fin film om en äldre man och hans bästa vänner. Någon har jämfört den med The Straight Story av David Lynch, men här är åkgräsklipparen ersatt av en åsna.

Chico Pereira

Regissör: Chico Pereira

Chico Pereira, born in 1979 in Almaden, Spain, is a director and writer. After several award-winning short fiction films he moved towards documentary by devising minimalist narratives inspired by real-life characters and performed by them. As part of his research for the MFA Advanced Film Practice at Edinburgh Napier University, Chico started combining fiction and documentary film techniques. Pablo’s Winter was his graduation film and his first feature length work. It won awards at DOK Leipzig, IDFA and Full Frame, and opened the 2013 MoMA Documentary Fortnight in NYC. A short doc Polaris, about Filipino fishermen on Scottish boats, followed.

Manolo has alway been an inspiration to me. He is my uncle and my godfather. When I was a child he used to take me and his other nephews into the country for “adventures”, which basically consisted of spotting wild animals, listening to fantastic stories about the countryside, or taking mysterious trips into the unknown. Thinking back, they were ordinary moments that he would turn into fantastic stories for us. All of us were fascinated by this character and sometimes we would wait at eight in the morning outside our houses to see Manolo passing by, begging him to take us with him. But one day, Manolo divorced my auntie and a terrible silence between the two families ensued. Many years passed when his nephews grew up without ever having contact with him. Our relationship was interrupted at some point in our childhood and stayed there, frozen in our memories.
