  • Yvy Maraey: Land without Evil

    2013. Bolivia/Mexico. Written and directed by Juan Carlos Valdivia. Based on a story by Valdivia, Elio Ortíz. With Valdivia, Ortíz. A well-off metropolitan filmmaker hoping to retrace the trail of an early Swedish documentarian travels to the Bolivian highlands in search of savages. Once there, however, he finds his privileged cultural position met with ire more often than awe. Including allusions to documentary classics like Nanook of the North, Valdivia’s film moves beyond the plot itself to probe larger questions of memory, the politics of representation, and the power of cinema, all with sophistication and grace. In Spanish; English subtitles. 107 min.

In the Film exhibition Iberoamérican Images: The State of the Art
