Apretentious chronicle of a woman’s search for her brother, “Roraima” offers a meandering microcosm of modern Venezuelan society. Second feature by Carlos Oteyza is set in the jungles of Roraima, a no-man’s-land inhabited by outlaws and rejects from civilization.

Pic begins when Carlota (Isabel Dussinova) is sent by her father to look for her younger brother, who disappeared years earlier under suspicion of having killed a woman.

The brother was last heard to be living in Roraima, a jungle territory in southern Venezuela off limits to visitors and under international dispute. Area has become a haven for international fugitives in addition to those who illegally pan the rivers for gold and diamonds.

In road movie fashion, Carlota’s search brings her in contact with many of the area’s eccentric characters, who are preyed upon by a corrupt, all-powerful army unit.

Location shooting tends toward the pretty and at times makes the film look as if it were financed by the tourism department. Acting is OK.
