Samuel
Cesar Lucena, 2011
Venezuela | Format: 35mm | 75 minutes

U.S. Premiere!

Alma and Samuel have never left the mountains where they were born. In search of a cure for infertility, the couple travels to meet an eccentric healer visiting from Spain who discovers Samuel has the gift of healing. Despite his resistance to believe this, Samuel's life is inexorably changed. A proponent of the Venezuelan “Atom Cinema” manifesto, this stunningly beautiful portrait of life in the mountains is based on the ideas of Edgar Cayce, who investigated hypnosis as a form of diagnosing and curing illnesses.

Alma y Samuel nunca se han alejado del pueblo montañoso donde nacieron. Al buscar una cura para la infertilidad, conocen a un curandero extranjero que descubre que Samuel tiene poderes de sanación. A pesar de que éste se rehusa a creerlo, su vida cambia inexorablemente. Un producto del “Cine Atomo” venezolano, este bellísimo retrato de la vida en las montañas esta basado en las ideas de Edgar Cayce, quien investigó los poderes de la hipnosis para diagnosticar y curar enfermedades.
