Eureka – TRAILER

Eureka trailer - Viggo Mortensen stars in a sombre thriller...

Something a little different is the Eureka trailer. Described by Screen Anarchy as Argentine auteur Lisandro Alonso’s “most expansive and ambitious film to date”, the first section of EUREKA is a richly-textured old-style Western, shot in monochrome, reminiscent of Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man; from there the film glides into the modern US in full colour, with Alaina Clifford as a disgruntled cop on a Native American reservation… and then time travels back to a 1970s Brazilian jungle.

Alaina is tired of being a police officer in the Pine Ridge Reservation and decides to stop answering her radio. Her niece Sadie spends a long night waiting for her, to no avail. Hurt, she decides to begin her journey with the help of her grandfather: she will fly through time and space to South America, finally she will stop watching old black and white westerns that do not represent her in any way, and everything will feel different when she hears the dreams of other people, those who live in the forest. But there will be no definitive conclusions… Birds don’t talk to humans, yet if only we could understand them, they would surely have a few truths to tell us.

Lisandro Alonso (who wrote the script with renowned Argentinian authors Martin Camaño and Fabian Casas), the film reunites the director with Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen (Green Book), who starred in the directors 2014’s Cannes award-winning Jauja. His film, Jauja, set in 19th century Denmark and Argentina and starring Viggo Mortensen, won the FIPRESCI award in the section Un Certain Regard.
