Capturing the life of real people amidst the Venezuelan crisis, La Soledad is the story of José, a young father who discovers that the dilapidated mansion he occupies will soon be demolished. Desperate to save his family from homelessness, José begins a search for a cursed treasure that has long been said to be buried in the house.
Jorge Thielen Armand’s feature debut carves fiction from reality: La Soledad was once his family’s home; this story is true, acted out by the people who lived it. La Soledad is a magnificent feat of real-life storytelling—and a profound fusion of creativity and compassion.
