CPH:DOX 2017: THE UNFORGIVEN DE LARS FELDBALLE-PETERSEN

Por José Sarmiento

Tópicos sobre el arrepentimiento, perdón y reivindicación son cuidadosamente diseccionados en el nuevo documental de Lars Feldballe-Petersen, The Unforgiven. El director finlandés fija su mirada en Esad Lanzo, un hombre que intenta reconstruir su vida después de ser condenado por muertes y torturas en la antigua guerra civil de Yugoslavia. Lanzo, un hombre atormentado por sus demonios, intenta apaciguar su sufrimiento en una búsqueda agotadora de los prisioneros de guerra que torturó, para pedirles perdón y comprensión. Es difícil mostrar la confrontación con el criminal, especialmente por el contexto de una guerra tan brutal como la que vivió la ex Yugoslavia, pero Feldballe-Petersen le permite a su cámara no hacer juicios previos, y más bien seguir a este protagonista sin comprometerse más con una correspondencia empática.
