That Summer Without a Home. The mystery of the wandering boys

Free as the wind, the sixteen-millimeter camera of the young Argentinean filmmaker Santiago Reale follows a young farmer and a group of teenagers wandering in summer days in the middle of the rural world.

A farm in the middle of a bucolic landscape. A flooded cemetery. Wet feet. Iron barrels rolling down the hillside. The sun wants to hide in the sunset. 

Everything is filmed with beautiful film grain and a narrator who tells us clues to the mystery of that landscape.
