Une jeunesse allemande

In 1968, Ulrike Meinhof wrote: “The fun is over: a protest is when I say I don’t like this and that. Resistance is when I see to it that things that I don’t like no longer occur.” Two years later, she would come to lead the Red Army Fraction along with Andreas Baader. How did it get from extreme A, in which a young Marxist w...

UPA 2! El regreso

The films by “the kids from independent cinema” don’t usually have sequels, but UPA 2! has enough eccentricity and self-confidence to embark on such task. The kids from the first UPA! had received the Argentine Competition’s main award at Bafici 2007 –in 2015, they maintain their boldness and their ability to observe w...

Vashti Bunyan: From Here to Before

Out of the endless legends the Sixties have provided to pop and rock mythology, few are as fascinating as the one of Vashti Bunyan, the fairy singer and composer who, right before reaching stardom, set out on a wagon trip from London to Scotland, where she put out all the lights around her in order to live a simple life in anonymity for several dec...

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...

Victoria

A(nother) film shot in one continuous take. But this one really seems to be only one shot, or at least that’s what we’re told and, above all, what we perceive while watching Victoria. Are digital cameras the reason more directors try to make more films like this one? It’s possible, and it’s already happening. But Victoria is...

But when she sings the first notes of an Omara Portuondo song, we can realize that she’s something special. Victoria is a singer with an exceptional voice. She has released album...

So in 2010 a...

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...
