« Ten years after his dazzling film JAUJA, Argentinian director Lisandro Alsonso surrounds himself with a renowned cast, with Viggo Mortensen, Chiara Mastroianni and Maria de Medeiros, in his new feature film EUREKA premiered at Cannes Première. »


Alaina is tired of being a police officer in the Pine Ridge Reservation, and decides to stop answering her radio. Her niece Sadie spends a long night waiting for her, to no avail. Hurt, she decides to begin her journey with the help of her grandfather: she will fly through time and space to South America, finally she will stop watching old black and white westerns that do not represent her in any way, and everything will feel different when she hears the dreams of other people, those who live in the forest. But there will be no definitive conclusions… Birds don’t talk to humans, yet if only we could understand them, they would surely have a few truths to tell us.
