The boom of digital video in recent years transformed the recording of family events, multiplying it and raising the standard of the images. Many people dream about using these elements to build a story that would attract a large audience –the inevitable subjective nature of these materials are the main obstacle to achieve a “real film” out of it. But Gastón Solnicki manages to meet that challenge by adopting the same invisible point of view as he did in his previous film süden: he chooses to elide himself from the family portrait, he’s only mentioned very few times, and he is never featured on screen. Papirosen shows the invisible strings that weave together family components, its power games, feelings, and contradictions. As if that wasn’t enough, it also has a themEdición: paternity and its meaning throughout different generations, from histrionic Víctor, who presides the clan, to little Mateo, a child of the new millennium who is both the witness and the reserve of the rituals, habits, and stories that turn a family into a world in its own.
