SYNOPSIS

Wealthy middle-aged Armando (Alfredo Castro) lures young men to his home with money. He doesn’t want to touch, only watch from a strict distance. He also follows an elderly businessman with whom he seems to have had a traumatic relationship. Armando’s first encounter with street thug Elder (Luis Silva) is violent, but this doesn’t discourage the lonely man’s fascination with the tough handsome teenager. Financial interest keeps Elder visiting him regularly and an unexpected intimacy emerges. But Armando's haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ultimate act of affection on Armando’s behalf.

FROM AFAR is the shattering feature debut from Venezuelan writer-director Lorenzo Vigas. Set in Caracas’ chaotic lower class communities, Vigas’ turbulent story reveals the complex bond between two men worlds apart.
