El Proyeccionista

The Projectionist

Directed by José Maria Cabral

Cast: Felix Germán, Cindy Galán

All his life, Eliseo has brought the magic of movies to the small rural towns in the Dominican Republic countryside via his traveling cinema caravan. When he’s not on the road or putting on a show, Eliseo is entranced by old film reels that he never shows anyone: images of a beautiful young woman he only knows through a projected film reel. One fateful night, however, the reels are damaged. Eliseo loses the only thing he felt connected to — the projected image of the woman he loves so much — and is plunged into a search for her real identity. Accompanied by a free-spirited girl on a cinema journey that takes him to some of the most remote and poorest areas of the Dominican Republic, Eliseo will learn that hope should never be lost and blood is thicker than water in more ways than one.
