CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: MARTIRIO BY VINCENT CARELLI, ERNESTO DE CARVALHO AND TATIANA ALMEIDA

By Aldo Padilla

The shot opening the film is a recording where Vincent Carrelli struggles to understand the hybrid dialect used by the indigenous people, which is an excellent resource understood as a way of starting a path. Almost at the end, the same shot is repeated, but now with a proper translation, which indicates that through the recording process an evolution has been reached, a connection with the indigenous people which doesn’t feel alien anymore.

CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: LUZ OBSCURA BY SUSANA DE SOUSA DIAS

By Ivonne Sheen

Susana de Sousa’s Luz Obscura (Obscure Light) is a sensitive essay about memory and time through the juxtaposition of images (archive photos) from the political dissidents and audios of their children’s memories. These testimonies of former Portuguese communists’ children that were imprisoned by the PIDE (Portuguese police) during the years of the Antonio de Oliveira’s regime are now voices of aching adults whose memories we listen to.

CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: EL CINE DE ING K

Por Nicole Brenez

Abandonar sus estudios en artes plásticas para socorrer a los refugiados de la frontera camboyana: una acción como tal resume la actitud de la periodista, escritora y cineasta Ing Kanjanavanit – renunciar a la academia porque hay más urgencias por socorrer, su próxima acción. Así es como el arte se conecta directamente con la violencia de lo real y se halla reconfigurada en ello (…)

CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: THE FILMS OF ING K

By Nicole Brenez
That’s how art connects directly with the violence of reality and finds itself reconfigured in it, as it is accredited in the work of Ing K, completely consecrated to the political, social, religious, economic and ecological problems of her country, Thailand, or, as she calls it “Siam”, according to its anti-fascist name.

CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: LES ÎLES RÉSONNANTES (RESONANT ISLANDS) BY JURUNA MALLON

By Ivonne Sheen
Juruna Mallon’s Les Îles Résonnantes (Resonant Islands) approaches Eliane Radigue and her aesthetics with a subtle audiovisual composition that mixes her sound sculptures with visual explorations of herself, her work, and evocations from her music. The film stands far away from any precise biographical portrayal to immerse us in her intimate and spiritual approach to sound, music and life.
