See this film: El Huaso [with director Carlos Guillermo Proto in person] @ the Brattle

In Carlo Guillermo Proto's documentary El Huaso (2012), the director's father, Toronto retiree Gustavo Proto, returns to his native Chile to fulfill his dream of becoming the rodeo star of the title. But tests suggest that he might have Alzheimer's, which could complicate, or maybe simplify his plans, since he intends to end his life once his condition becomes hopeless. This subtle, complex look at the limits of individual choice and social responsibility is the latest entry in the outstanding DocYard series at the Brattle Theatre. The director will be on hand for a Q&A.
