Argentine filmmaker Lisandro Alonso was last seen at Cannes in 2008 with his drama about a sailor, "Liverpool." He's exploring the natural world yet again in "Jauja," the Un Certain Regard entry starring Viggo Mortensen as a father who treks with his daughter from Denmark to an uncharted desert in South America.

Costarring Ghita Norby, "Jauja" is cowritten by Alonso and first-time scribe Fabian Casas, and this is Alonso's first narrative feature since "Liverpool." He made an international splash in 2004 with "Los Muertos," another mystery that turned on the relationship between father and daughter.

Take a look at images from the set of "Jauja" below, and Indiewire has an exclusive on the beautiful new poster here. The film will compete for the Un Certain Regard prize, under Argentinian jury president Pablo Trapero.
