Fashioning nearly 200 hours of footage shot over a decade into a family portrait at once epic and intimate, the young Argentinian filmmaker Solnicki (whose previous film was süden) elevates the home movie to an art. Four generations of his Buenos Aires clan are captured on vacations and at family gatherings, as well as in small everyday moments. Digging into the family archives and incorporating the musings of his grandmother, Pola, a Holocaust survivor, Solnicki crafts a deeply affecting meditation on the meaning of family and the weight of history. Sponsored by Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, PRAGDA, Center for Global Initiatives, Center for European Studies at Duke University, and the NC Latin American Film Festival.
