We are delighted to welcome director Marí Alessandrini for a Q&A after the first screening of Zahorí on 13 November.

The remarkable first feature by Marí Alessandrini, Zahorí is a moving story of teenage rebellion and self-discovery set amidst the beautiful and desolate landscape of the Patagonian Steppe. The film centres around thirteen-year-old Mora, who lives on the border between Chile and Argentina with her little brother Himeko and her Swiss-Italian ecologist parents as they attempt to run a farm. An outcast at school and at odds with her parents, Mora befriends her elderly Mapuche neighbour, Nazareno, who has lost his horse Zahorí. As Mora travels into the desert in search of Zahorí she begins a personal journey of discovery.
