In 1985, Ignacio Agüero spontaneously visited other Chilean directors on set to ask them about making films under Pinochet’s dictatorship. (The resulting 30-minute short, Como me da la gana, was, unsurprisingly, censored.) Thirty years later, Agüero revisits the concept, but he dramatically complicates it, by both rephrasing his line of questioning and repeatedly interrupting these recorded scenes with clips from his family’s home movies and his own films, interviews with random people, and landscape shots. This complex and entertaining film, which won the International Competition Grand Prix at FIDMarseille, dramatizes an ongoing negotiation between past and present.
