A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
This ReelEarth film from Bolivia, by Noah Friedman-Rudovsky, is a portrait of a strong-willed, yet heartwarming couple who have chosen to live life on their own terms. Aurelia and Alfredo moved to Incahuasi Island in the 1980s. This small, deserted, cactus-covered landmass is surrounded by Bolivia's famous Uyuni Salt Flats. Incahuasi has neither water nor fertile land for agriculture. Despite these challenges, the couple was determined, if not destined, to caretake this island and make it the source of their livelihood. It also serves to anchor their relationship with the land, their faith in Pachamama, and their paradoxical embrace of humanity. This film captures the essence of a couple's journey through loneliness and their struggle towards triumph, peace of mind, and new adventures ahead. One of my ReelEarth favorites!
