A family prepares for their daughter's quinceanera in this meditative Argentinian film. Using the Wichi Lhamtes language in voiceover, the family's maid quietly comments on nature and her native culture amidst lingering shots of the Argentinian brush. Natural sound permeates the soundtrack which is occasionally cut by the sound of heavy logging equipment. The town nervously awaits a possible earthquake, and the camera begins to jostle ominously near the end of the film. Nosilatiaj.Beauty played at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
