(MEMORIA DESMEMORIADA)

U.S. THEATRICAL PREMIERE RUN! DIRECTOR IN PERSON!

Co-presented by Cinema Tropical.

With a background in ethnography and psychology, French photographer and filmmaker Dominique Dubosc has been making nonfiction films and videos since the late 1960s. Wide-ranging both culturally and geographically, his body of work has encompassed extensive investigations into Latin America, Palestine, and the U.S., among other places, and has found him evoking or collaborating with figures from writers Felix Fénéon and Georges Perec, to photographer Duane Michals, to filmmakers Jean Rouch and Jonas Mekas.

His new, feature-length film, PARAGUAY REMEMBERED, finds him returning for the first time in 40 years to the region that gave rise to his first films – the trilogy comprising KUARAHY OHECHA (1968), MANOJHARA (1969), and THE DAYS OF OUR DEATH (1970). As he wanders in Asuncion and meets old and new friends, fragments of memories he had forgotten are revived. The shooting process itself becomes the means to remember. Little by little, his memories take him back to a romantic encounter with a woman in Argentina. Incidents of oppression under dictatorship are intertwined with his private recollections. PARAGUAY REMEMBERED is both a penetrating portrait of a city and a society, and a haunting investigation into the mechanics and poetics of memory.

“For Dubosc, cinema is not a spectacle but a form of writing, a living text that [here] displays the landscapes of the past in the present instant. The film is an involuntary return to the 1970s when the Condor Plan spread over Latin America and the Stroessner dictatorship continued in Paraguay. Dubosc succeeds in creating an ‘exquisite’ construction that integrates historical facts, personal feelings, visual esthetics, and poetical discourse.” –Adriana Almada, BOLIVIA BIENNIAL 2016
