NUESTRA VOZ DE TIERRA, MEMORIA Y FUTURO, 1981

Following up on the Harun Farocki Institute's public screening of Marta Rodriguez and Jorge Silva's "Chircale"s, we are screening their NUESTRA VOZ DE TIERRA, MEMORIA Y FUTURO (Our Voice of the Earth, Memory and the Future) on June 14. It was shot in 1981 and premiered in the Berlinale Forum in 1982, for which a 16-mm print with German subtitles was created. The Colombian filmmaker Marta Rodriguez was born in Bogotá in 1933 and studied anthropology there before going to Paris to study film. She and the cameraman Jorge Silva filmed a series of anthropological documentaries about indigenous culture in the Andes. NUESTRA VOZ DE TIERRA, MEMORIA Y FUTURO uses fictional elements to explore the struggle of land reclamation and the attempt to see the past politically and the present historically.
