The Family Tree
In his latest film, provocative auteur Jorge Ameer narrates a nostalgic Christmas story based on a old Panamanian holiday tradition. Víctor Gardel, a lonely workaholic, rescues animals for a local shelter. He loves the end of the year celebrations. From small, he would create life size dolls made out of newspaper and explosives to celebrate the end of year festivities. However, this holiday season will prove unforgettable as Victor's latest creation comes to life to disrupt and enlighten him on the true meaning of love, friendship and family. Life ,as he knows it, is about to change. The holiday spectre will teach him to cherish the moments that makes lasting memories, as what was once is no more.
