Ignacio Agüero (director) attends to the screening

In Como me da la gana, shot during Pinochet’s dictatorship, Agüero asked his colleagues what were they filming and to whom was it addressed. Thirty years later, in democracy, the question is different: what is cinema? Young Chilean filmmakers answer with imprecision, even Agüero can only suggest an answer while hiding it. A first clue: cinema is at the mercy of time; the analogue footage of No Olvidar included here is not quite the same as the video tape of a film in Leningrad never exhibited, and even less to the digital nature of this film. The essential answer is visible and telepathy is not necessary to read Agüero’s mind.
