15 April 2013

Radiografía del desierto, a documentary by Mendoza-born director Mariano Donoso, is a visual essay about the landscape, the life and the jobs that blossom in the most arid areas of his province: it was filmed in the dry land of Lavalle, at the Andean foothills, in El Nihuil, in the City of Mendoza and from an airplane. The camera follows several characters and, specially, the jobs performed in the most arid regions – including a plane pilot, a family of well-diggers who build water reserves and irrigation wells, and a historian/geographer, among others. However, the dry territory, which is almost an abstract idea, is central to the film. “The result is not a naturalistic image, but an abstraction. In-depth pictures are not painted for the sake of pleasure, and this film is not precisely a form entertainment,” the film’s director said to Mendoza’s newspaper Los Andes. There are tickets available to see the film on Wednesday 17 at 3.30 p.m. and Friday 19 at 3.35 p.m. at the Centro Cultural San Martín and on Sunday 21 at 8.10 p.m. at Village Recoleta. Tickets can be purchased on this website or in person at the screening venues’ box offices.
