Wandering Lives Wandering Lives

Where to watch

Drawing on personal experiences, de la Riva follows an itinerant
movie projectionist who travels along the mountain back-roads in
a battered truck, showing classic movies to lumberjacks off the
tailgate. Camping, sleeping on old film posters in cheap hotels,
Francisco’s life is rootless. A younger vagabond becomes his helper,
then a pretty young woman becomes their companion. Along with a
backwoods carpenter, the two young people help Francisco attempt
to realize an elusive dream—to settle in his hometown, build his own
theatre and show his cherished movies.
