Everything That Is Forgotten in an Instant is a documentary essay on the construction of identity and in particular the American identity. Woven from black and white 16mm images that the filmmaker shot over the past 16 years after moving to Buenos Aires: workers rebuilding a sandbox in a plaza, marches and protests, the city as seen from the window of a bus, family life, and also interviews he recorded with his father in Hi8 video in the Lower East Side of New York, where he grew up during the Great Depression. The documentary aims to construct a bridge between his two worlds: Argentina and the United States, Buenos Aires and New York.

A poet dies, and another one, younger, feels an obligation to promote her work. She is joined by a team of women filmmakers. The film begins with this unusual triangle but, interestingly, it grows into something more complex and subtle than a traditional research project. Predictably, questions arise, but so do revelations and almost clandestine moments of beauty and lucidity, along with a persistent sense of uncertainty that ends up becoming a goal in its own right. Thanks to this unexpected approach, Juana Bignozzi appears in this film in all her glory, invincible and very much alive: the film triumphs.
