CINEMA DU REEL 2018: LAS FUERZAS, BY PAOLA BUONTEMPO AND OPTIMISM DE DEBORAH STRATMAN
By Nicolás Carrasco
From the remote territory of Dawson City, in the Canadian Yukon, Deborah Stratman reminds us of a past that remains frozen in the winter cold. Strongly related to Bill Morrison’s Dawson City: Frozen Time, Stratman’s portrait of this town is not chronological or about film archeology; her main interest is in the study of spaces. Cancan dancers, curling players, smelters of minerals, and a curious disc on the edge of a mountain congregate to form a portrait of the city.
