Mundos especulares (Mirror Worlds) (2008, HDV 37mins)

Documentary focused on the development of Argentina’s post-traumatic history after the dictatorship of 1976-83, particularly on the role of film production in the construction of national memory and recovery.  The documentary maps the general trajectory of increasingly nuanced and complex filmic representations, while contextualizing each film’s production within the shifting and often contradictory political discourses surrounding that traumatic period. Funded by Ohio State Honors Research Grant and International Affairs Grant.
