NO HAY CAMINO
It’s about the journey, not the destination. For Heddy Honigmann, who is suffering from cancer, the journey leads to the past. We follow her to her homeland of Peru, where she encounters her companions and her films and we experience the filmmaker’s enduring charisma.
We present the International Premiere of the film.
