Ata tu arado a una estrella

December 12 only

In 1997 the Argentine filmmaker Fernando Birri returned to his home country to film a documentary on the 30th anniversary of the death of Che Guevara and the relevance of utopias at that time. Carmen Guarini decided to record those moments. A rough edit of this film was hidden away on a fragile VHS tape for twenty years. Today, these images come to life and shed some light on the life of this Latin American poet and master filmmaker, who, at the age of 92, still refused to give up on his own utopias. With Fernando Birri, Eduardo Galeano, Ernesto Sabato, León Ferrari, Tanya Valette.

¿Perviven las utopías? preguntaba el “padre del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano,” Fernando Birri. Guarini, en su documental, entrelaza dos décadas de metraje en una historia que inmortaliza el espíritu de un hombre libre y honesto que nos recuerda cuán esenciales son las utopías para nuestra supervivencia como humanos.

Directed by Carmen Guarini. Argentina. 2017. 82min. DCP.

Presented by RoxCine
