Ecuador’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, A Son of Man follows Pipe, a teenager from Minneapolis, as he joins his father on a treasure hunt for lost Inca gold in the beautiful, but treacherous, Amazonian rainforest. The trans-generational drama fuses the heightened aesthetic possibilities of narrative film with the naked truth of documentary. Director Fernandez-Salvador (known as Jamaicanoproblem) is the son of the renowned explorer Andrés Fernández-Salvador y Zaldumbide.

His film, 10 years in the making, reveals his lifetime’s ambition to be a good son to this larger-than-life man, and to immortalise him in an immersive cinematic experience. Unscripted and shot on locations across the Ecuadorian jungle, using only drone cameras, this stunning and surreal film highlights the preciousness of our Earth, the Amazon, and the ancient tribes who live within it.c

Co-Directed by Pablo Agüero
