VIAJE (Paz Fábrega, 2015; 71 min)
Luciana and Pedro meet at a party, go home together, and just a few hours later find themselves on the way to Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park, where they spend the next few days, knowing after that they probably won’t see each other again. Eschewing the fraudulent nature of traditional relationships, the pair explores the beauty in the nature that surrounds them as they indulge in the passions of their encounter and navigate the various meanings of commitment.
