Orillas

Drama 2010 96 min

The film tells two, apparently, very distant stories that slowly come closer together. On the one hand, there is Babarimisa, a young man from Benin who suffers from an implacable disease for which he seems to have no cure. Desperate to be saved by his mother, Morenike, he goes to a Yoruba priestess to invoke the power of the Orixas gods. Meanwhile in Argentina, Shantas is a young delinquent who lives in a marginal area stained by the practices of Umbanda, a cult derived from African religions. Neither of them can even imagine the surprises that fate will bring.

El film narra dos historias, al parecer, muy distantes que lentamente van aproximándose entre sí. Por una parte se encuentra Babarimisa, un joven de Benín quien sufre de una implacable enfermedad para la que parece no tener remedio. Desesperada por salvarlo su madre, Morenike, acude a una sacerdotisa Yoruba para invocar el poder de los dioses Orixás. Mientras tanto en Argentina, Shantas es un joven delincuente que vive en una zona marginal teñida por las prácticas del Umbanda, un culto derivado de las religiones africanas. Ningunos de los dos puede siquiera imaginar las sorpresas que les deparará el destino.
