for an extraordinary documentary film talent
El edificio de los chilenos (The Chilean Building) by Macarena Aguiló (Chili, France, Cuba)
A film that takes the viewer into a landscape of memories, into a childhood of our world.
From her personal experience, the director is looking back and around in a in a tender way. In doing so, not only does she open a dialogue between the generations, she also picks up ideas which her parents and some nations lost or dropped not very long ago. In this sense, the film also asks the question about the future of our existing political world. Being self-confident, the film avoids looking inward. The film is witness of what has developed „between societies" and reminds us with its multi-faceted images that we must have a WILL to cope with life.
