From Afar

From Afar is a compelling and beautifully shot story of the complex relationship between two men from different worlds. Haunted by traumas from his past, wealthy, middle-aged Armando (played by Chilean star Alfredo Castro) has difficulty forming relationships, instead paying young men to come to his home and undress while he watches. Yet, his world is radically changed after a violent encounter with young street mechanic Elder (Luis Silva) sparks off a dangerous love affair between them. The debut feature from Lorenzo Vigas – heralded as one of the most exciting new directors today – From Afar is a meditation on human desire and a sensitive portrait of the tensions and repression of Venezuelan society.
