Tierra en movimiento

The earthquake that hit Chile in 2010 didn’t just leave casualties. When the earth moves, it destroys, but it also discovers the true nature of some things. A building that represents the happy, modern lifestyle becomes the symbol of opportunism and greed -the clothes drying in the sun in surrender flags of a town that is bombed every 15 year...

Tired Moonlight

There’s a genre (literary, musical, cinematic) ambiguously called Americana. It has to do with evoking a rural medium, a small, isolated town or city (it includes It’s a Wonderful Life, The Last Picture Show and even The Straight Story) and, in a more metaphorical way, with appealing the primitive essence of the American through its com...

Toponimia

Toponymy is the discipline that studies the etymological origin of place names. What Perel chooses to analyze visually in his film is a series of towns located in the western portion of the province of Tucumán, which were founded by the military government during the mid-70s within the framework of the Operativo Independencia (Operation Inde...

Tras la pantalla

“I feel tired of all this daily battle that is bad for my health,” film distributor Pascual Condito wrote when, two years ago, he announced his retirement from the market. Marcos Martínez captures his reinvention and exposes him as a furious Quixote fighting against Hollywood and the big companies that, according to him, “h...

Travelling at Night with Jim Jarmusch

Léa Rinaldi knows how to observe, which is not the same as watching (that’s an action that deserves the category of subgroup) nor registering or filming (a subgroup within the subgroup). She proves this in Esto es lo que hay –which this year competes for the Human Rights Award in Bafici– addressing a complex issue and obser...

Un aplauso al que vive

No taboos seem to exist for evangelist pastor Diego Gebel and his three-hour-plus shows-masses. Dancing, music, variety shows, transvestites, sequin, stand-up comedy or singer Pocho la Pantera; to Gebel, who officiates those agitated bacchanalias, everything can turn into an instrument to spread the word of God and alleviate people’s souls. F...

Under Electric Clouds

Russia, 2017, one hundred years after the Revolution. Through interlocking stories, with the common denominator of a building erected as a symbol of the wreckage, Aleksei German Jr. puts his signature in a film as demanding as it is fascinating. Displaying a majestic visual power (justly awarded at the last Berlinale), the camera slides between the...

Vergine giurata

In a mountainous region in Albania where women have no rights at all, it’s optional to hide femininity, make the promise of remaining a virgin for life –hence the film’s title- and adopt the aspect of a male. This way, those virgins can take on “male practices” as classified by this traditional society, such as working...

Vergüenza y respeto

It’s not easy being a gypsy. “It’s easier to say it than to be it,” says one of the main characters in Shame and Respect. It’s not easy being a gypsy and, for a payo (that is to say, for a non-gypsy), it’s also not easy to understand what that implies –prejudice, it’s known, never allows one to see cl...

Walsh entre todos

In one of the intertitles of Walsh entre todos, artist Jorge González Perrín tells that, for many years, he felt the need of honoring his friends who were murdered and disappeared during the Argentine military dictatorship, and that it was when those responsible went to trial that he came up with a way of carrying it out. So in 2010 a...

Why?

An Israeli series of “love letters to cinema” drives this short that is precise and concise as possible. After being asked about a shot that changed his life, a filmmaker goes twenty years back in order to remember an episode of his time in the army: seeing Teorema. The fascination for the military, the tribal notion of virility, the ne...

Words with Gods

This episodic collective film speculates, sometimes as desperate comedy, on the manifestations of divinity under the points of view of a gang of renowned directors. That the gods are crazy and have a thousand faces seems to be the general conclusion, and they also have a sense of humor, a capricious temper, fits of rage or apathetic gestures like t...
