Anthology Film Archives


February 25 – February 26

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.

“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
