Omar the bricklayer, a film buff, lives in a small village in Argentina. With no cinema in the village, he decides to build one himself, toiling alone for years to erect the structure from discarded materials on top of his house. Using an old projector, he screens classics for the enjoyment of the locals. An uplifting tale of one man’s love of cinema. Subtle, atmospheric and congenial, it rekindles your faith in mankind.
