Nothing and everything happens in first-timer Dominga Sotomayor Castillo’s dreamy, dusty, minimalist road trip.

An uneventful camping weekend triggers a parental separation, viewed via the minutely observed backseat POV of 11-year-old Lucia (a staggeringly natural Santi Ahumada).

Castillo conjures up the drifting tween viewpoint beautifully, gripped by car-roof-surfing and river-exploring alongside the subdued bickering of parents Francisco Pérez-Bannen and Paola Giannini.

Meanwhile, the images of North Chile’s lunar landscapes sing - if you can stand the mercilessly long takes.
