The Gold Seekers

Juan Carlos Maneglia, Tana Schembori

Paraguay, 2017, 99 minutes

Fast-paced, funny, and full of piquant observations about Paraguayan society, Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schembori’s clever heist movie is old-fashioned entertainment in the best sense of the phrase: its focus on story and character keep the plot humming along. Good-natured and clever to a fault, newspaper delivery boy Manu dreams of a life of opulence and wealth, one far beyond his shantytown outside Asunción. Given a book on his nation’s history by his once-thrill-seeking grandfather, Manu discovers a weathered treasure map hidden within and visions of untold wealth begin to float before his eyes. Enlisting the help of his manic best friend, Fito, and the cautious local café owner, Elio, Manu sets out to uncover a hidden fortune. They quickly discover that Paraguay—as well as a colorful cast of locals just as desperate to escape poverty—does not give up its secrets easily.—Palm Springs International Film Festival
