54 FdP - "Gian Paolo Paoli" Award
"GIAN PAOLO PAOLI" AWARD FOR BEST ETHNO-ANTHROPOLOGICAL FILM
Buenos Dias Resistencia (Spain, 2013)
by Adrián Orr
The filmmaker camps out in his friend's house to make an intimate observation that amplifies little moments into a compelling story of family relations and staged interruptions. Even though “ethnography” may not be the film’s original goal, its combination of fiction and documentary provides us with an evocative “thick description” that surpasses so-called “ethnographic film” and shares with us a lucid poem filmed with generosity.
