Stemming from the triple border territory between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil, Fran Rebelatto’s first feature film follows the women known as “pasajeras” and their daily passages across these frontiers. Grounded on equally borderline procedures between documentary, the domain of fiction, and indigenous mythologies, the film records the everyday fluctuations of these lives traversed by a landscape constantly in motion, building female narratives of sacrifice and resistance.
