Solar Lands

2019 Documentary

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Nicaraguan poet Rubén Darío fulfilled a dream of youth, travelling to Spain and touring Andalusia. It was a journey in search of the sun and a light that would heal him from his chronic bronchitis and the sadness in which he was submerged. An expedition in search of beauty, to the lands of the sun. Solar Lands presents this little-mentioned moment in the life of Darío, but it also helps us to learn about his life and the main characteristics and importance of his complete work from the hand of specialists and high-level women and men of letters. The actor Pedro Casablanc gives voice to the verses of Rubén Darío in this beautiful documentary, which was Laura Hojman's first directing work.
