Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

A film about people who chase cars in order to hunk their horn. Or about the eternal tension that exists between industrial bourgeoisie and the workers. Passion is an absolute simultaneity, the destruction of a fragmented world; it’s the world exploding in images and sounds as evidence of a fragmented world. It’s a realist film, the way only J. L. G.’s films can be: by dealing with the sacred world of ideas and the obtuse and always banal reality. How can film cling to even the smallest particle of an ideal world? Through his alter ego Jerzy, J. L. G. answers: the only way to capture reality on film with immense beauty is to turn it artificial. Passion is yet another step in the attempt to relate cinema to the fine arts; it’s both ballet and a disorganized choreography structured over settings of canonical pieces by Rubens, Goya or Velázquez. Passion is a pure flow, precisely because its script is restrictive and exclusive, just like the logic of capital. Passion: the one of Christ and his sacrifice, or the one of a filmmaker blindly chasing a temporary vision. Bafici ‘11 catalogue
