THE PROJECTIONIST

All his life, Eliseo has brought the magic of movies to the small rural towns in the Dominican Republic countryside via his travelling cinema caravan. When he’s not on the road or putting on a show, Eliseo is entranced by old film reels that he nevers shows anyone: images of a beautiful young woman he only knows through a projected film reel, a woman whose appearance makes his days brighter and his personal solitude less oppressing. One fateful night, however, the reels are damaged. Eliseo loses the only thing he felt connected to, the projected image of the woman he loves so much. Determined to finally solve the mystery of the obsession that has ruled his waking life, Eliseo heads out for another cinema tour to the most remote and poorest areas of the Dominican Republic, with only a few visual clues to go on. Unexpectedly, a free-spirited young girl bribes Eliseo into helping her escape one particularly dead-end town, and Eliseo is soon in an adventure that is way out of his emotional comfort zone.
