Retablo (Álvara Delgado-Aparicio)

© Álvara Delgado-Aparicio

Segundo Paucar, a 14-year-old boy, is being trained by his father, a master of traditional folk art of retablo-making – crafting intricate, artisan story-boxes depicting religious scenes and important everyday events – to continue with the family legacy. On his way to a patronal party, Segundo sees by accident something his father is doing and that makes his world come apart. In a traditional and conservative surround, Segundo will try to live in silence with everything going on.
