Nayra Antezana


When Nayra realizes her father (Tonchy Antezana) will stop making films, he finds an old unfinished script he wrote about his great-grandfather Chrysophore who was traveling on the Bolivian Altiplano high plateau with two mules delivering and showing films in mining centers in the early 20th century. So, Nayra decides to undertake a trip with her father along the Bolivian highlands, touring villages abandoned following the decline in mining, where her great-grandfather once undertook a film project. Nayra endeavours to rescue images that her grandparents did not leave behind, before nothing remains with the passing of time. Altiplanos, documentary (33 minutes)
