Filmar en América

Latina Genève 2020


Filmar en América Latina (Geneva) has now established itself as the Swiss rendezvous with high quality film productions from Latin America and also the opportunity to have a panoramic vision of its contemporary filmmaking.
It is difficult to track something like a trend, but we can say that affirmative filmic statements, often loaded with straightforward political claims, are certainly well balanced with more personal, even intimist portraits, which reveal the strong thread of a humanist tradition.
In our meticulous selection – 10 reviews of which 5 on new discoveries at the festival – we want to highlight the works by Argentinian Agustina Comedi and Bolivian Diego Mondaca, respectively:

El silencio es un cuerpo que cae - review by Jodie McNeilly-Renaudie
Chaco - review by Jean Perret

And three quite original proposals from Brazil, Colombia, and Peru:

No coração do mundo, by Gabriel Martins & Maurilio Martins - review by Nicolas Bézard
El alma quiere volar, by Diana Montenegro - review by Giuseppe Di Salvatore
Todos somos marineros, by Miguel Angel Moulet - review by Jean Perret

Beside Silence Radio (no longer in the 2020 online edition of Filmar en América Latina), here are the films in the festival selection that Filmexplorer has already discussed:
Canción sin nombre, by Melina León - review by Pamela Jahn
Ema y Gastón, by Pablo Larraín - review by Silvia Posavec
