Alejandra Rojo sketches a portrait of the Chilean filmmaker, who took up exile in France during the ‘73 coup d’état. He uses fragments from films, interviews and testimonies in order to account for the man who created an ironic, unclassifiable body of work.

The intimate life of the great Chilean filmmaker Raoul Ruiz is fascinating: he was a great talker, with very clear concepts, as well as a food and drink lover. But Ruiz was also a man thirsty for knowledge, something that you could notice on his films, which always played with time, history, and forms. Rojo’s film shows us how the filmmaker’s interest in science has traveled into the scenes, characters, and situations in his films. It’s fascinating to see how the filmmaker’s curiosity about time, and its relative nature, gets printed on a film like, for example, Three Lives and Only One Death (1996). Rojo picks up an idea from Ruiz: poetry has taken refuge in science. And this resourceful documentary, which shows its love for the filmmaker, seeks to unravel the poetry that is present in his films. RB
