Director: Lisandro Alonso | Argentina 2004 | 78 min
One is simply present in the moment in the films of the Argentinian filmmaker Lisandro Alonso, whose status as one of the last decade's most innovative exponents of the filmic hybrid experiments between documentary and fiction is becoming increasingly evident. His second film, "Los Muertos", takes place on the bare surface of the earth deep inside the Argentinian wilderness, where an ageing ex-convict sets out to depart from his earthly existence. Maybe. For Alonso explains nothing and instead confronts us with ourselves and our own questions. Nature surrounds the mute man on his journey, and creates a filmic space of sounds and impressions, which exists exclusively in the consciousness of the spectator.
Lisandro Alonso's latest short film "Carta para Serra" is also screening at CPH:DOX 2011 and can be seen in the NEW:VISION section.
