Manena is on a vacation in the south of Chile with her father Pancho, a wealthy landowner. He is obsessed with driving people out of his lagoon to prevent them from catching carp fish. While the tension mounts between him and locals, Manena experiences her first love. This debut feature of a documentarist dramatizes the tension between white landowner and local community by making the boundary of fiction and non-fiction blurry. Stylistically, it is hard to define. Location shooting and amateur actors enhance natural reality with some melodramatic nuance with Manena’s first love. The film intends to show how native land is abused by white people but the racial dispute isn’t at the forefront. With her delicate directing, Said doesn’t deliver the message directly but leads audiences to realize it. (JANG Byungwon)
