2. Amateur written, produced, filmed and directed by Martín Gutiérrez
Amateur can be understood as a gesture of love and justice towards people and spaces that represent an idea of home for the author. From three stories, a marriage old man, the memory of a suicide who
spent his last days spending and giving away what I had in the area and a huge shooting of J. Audiard’s last film, Amateur proposes a intimate portrait of a mountain village.
Gosha is a self-employed trucker, who delivers goods to remote northern parts of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). He uses his competitive edge and his services are expensive. Moreover, he supplies fake low-quality vodka to his native community, thereby alcoholizing the locals.
After another trip, he exchanges vodka for meat and fish – the only currency the northerners are able to pay him. His greed lures him into driving back to the city without a partner-driver. During the journey, his truck breaks down. He is stuck in the middle of nowhere. Нe is the only living soul for hundreds of kilometers around.
