Q&A with Andrés Di Tella

In his latest documentary, Argentinean filmmaker Andrés Di Tella uses photos and love letters from his late parents—his father, Torcuato, born in Argentina; and mother, Kamala, from India—to create an intimate portrait of a turbulent 20th-century love story. The letters, written between the ’50s and ’70s and read in the film by professional actors, describe love and idealism, world travels, socialism and psychoanalysis, pain and broken dreams. Meanwhile, with the assistance of his own daughter, Di Tella sets about solving the puzzle of his family’s memory.
