Ernesto, a seventy-eight-year-old Uruguayan photographer living in Brazil, faces the limitations of old age, such as loneliness and growing blindness, which he thinks he can disguise. When Ernesto became a widower, he learned that aging is about filling the silences with a spinning record, with the calls from his son who lives far away, with the bank errands to withdraw his pension, with his neighbor Javier's flying visits, with the wait for a new letter from Lucía. However, Bia, a careless dog carer, storms into his life and upsets his methodical daily life. And Ernesto realizes that aging can be about rejuvenating with the intense company of a girl who is not even thirty years old. And that life and love are possible even for those who are almost eighty.
An official selection in the Busan International Film Festival, and winner of the Critics' Award - Best Brazilian Film at the São Paulo International Film Festival, THROUGH ERNESTO'S EYES is the second feature film by multi-award-winning Brazilian filmmaker Ana Luiza Azevedo.
