A remote military outpost in Patagonia, 1882, during the so-called “Conquest of the Desert”, a genocidal campaign against the aboriginal population of the region. Acts of savagery abound on all sides. Captain Gunnar Dinesen has come from Denmark with his fifteen year-old daughter to take an engineering job with the Argentine army. Being the only female in the area, Ingeborg creates quite a stir among the men. She falls in love with a young soldier, and one night they run away together. When he wakes up the Captain realizes what has happened and decides to venture into enemy territory to find the young couple. JAUJA is the story of a man’s desperate search for his daughter, a solitary quest that takes us to a place beyond time, where the past vanishes and the future has no meaning.
“Alonso is one of those few filmmakers who understand cinema as the sole medium where there’s no real divide between true and false, dream and reality, film and filmmaking.” (Quintin)
