In 1969 Argentine filmmaker Hugo Santiago directed Invasión, his opera prima, written by Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares, and later settled in France. This film documents his return to Buenos Aires in 2013 to shoot his latest film, Le ciel du centaure.
Hugo Santiago is a real director, who even premiered his film Le ciel du centaur at the Bafici opening last year. But he’s also a mythical filmmaker, who had Borges, Bioy, and Saer as scriptwriters, and turned Buenos Aires into Aquilea but never stopped thinking about that city from a distance. El teorema de Santiago is an ambitious essay on the preparation, shooting, and premiere of Le Ciel du centaur. There are multiple references, admirations, maps, constant thinking about cinema –a particularly brilliant text by David Oubiña– and a constant positioning of Santiago as a cinematographic father with charisma and wisdom. A tribute and a chronicle, El teorema de Santiago is a film with an elaborated structure that pretends to solve mysteries, delivering yet another moving declaration of love for Buenos Aires and thinking about a way to tell this and other city stories.
