South American Indie Cinema
Just got back from a showing of Metro Cuadrado, a film by Nayra Ilic, a young Chilean film director. It tells the story of a couple moving in together and basically going backwards instead of blossoming and progressing. This was at another indie cinema, the Centro de Arte Alameda, a great theatre I'll be returning to tomorrow to see a Finnish documentary, Screaming Men, a film about a choir that just shouts. They perform law texts, national anthems of the countries they visit, children's songs, instruction manuals, the lot. Promises to be quite an entertaining evening. Apparently, audiences in all countries are just bewildered. So we'll be bewildered, too.
