Manolo vive en Andalucía, tiene 73 años, artritis crónica, antecedentes cardíacos y una gran pasión: recorrer grandes extensiones a píe junto a su fiel compañero, un burro llamado Gorrión. Al comienzo del filme Manolo tiene la ilusión de atravesar el océano y transitar el sendero de las lágrimas, el camino que miles de indios cheroquis se vieron obligados a realizar al ser expulsados de sus tierras. Claro que no quiere emprender este desafío en soledad sino junto a su burro, pero Gorrión le tiene fobia al agua y a Manolo no le resultará simple conseguir los permisos necesarios para transportarlo. Frente a este panorama este ingenioso hidalgo no se desalentará, por el contrario recorrerá largas planicies y se enfrentará a la burocracia y los molinos de viento.

Chico Pereira

After several award-winning short fiction films, Chico Pereira (born 1979 in Almaden, Spain) moved towards documentary by devising minimalist narratives inspired by real-life characters and performed by them. As part of his research for the MFA Advanced Film Practice at Edinburgh Napier University, Chico started combining fiction and documentary film techniques. PABLO’S WINTER was his graduation film and his first feature length work. It won awards at DOK Leipzig, IDFA and Full Frame, and opened the 2013 MoMA Documentary Fortnight in NYC. A short doc POLARIS, about Filipino fishermen on Scottish boats, followed. Chico is funded by a prestigious scholarship granted by “La Caixa” to undertake a PhD in Social Anthropology and Ethnographic Film in Santa Cruz, USA. DONKEYOTE is his sophomore film to his widely admired debut. Filmography (as director):DONKEYOTE (2017) feature documentary; PABLO’S WINTER (2012) feature documentary; POLARIS (2012) short; DISCO (2011) short; THE WAY TO MACONDO (2009) short; 6:05 PM (2008)
