Eureka

Part of Previously Unreleased : films that were shown at important festivals at home and abroad, but were not released in Dutch cinemas. Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso creates his own magical-realistic reality, with a contemplative role for a Jabiru stork. An impressive, graceful creature that provides a wonderful spectacle with its gray-black neck and ditto beak. In Eureka, director Lisandro Alonso works with actor Viggo Mortensen for the second time, after Jauja (2014). The latter brought Alonso into contact with the residents of the Pineridge Reservation in South Dakota, where much of the film was shot. Lisandro Alonso's very first film was La libertad (2001). Since that debut, he has become one of the most important players in new Argentine cinema. Eureka is his sixth, barely classifiable film. Ghent Film Festival described the film nicely: ' As if John Ford, David Lynch and Apichatpong Weerasethakul were making a film together and then Lisandro Alonso ran off with it .' Alonso combines his unique vision with poetry and philosophy in a film in which non-professional actors appear alongside celebrities such as Viggo Mortensen, Chiara Mastroianni and Maria Medeiros. Eureka had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
