Repetition is in the essence of cinema: the constant reiteration of frame after frame is what makes the illusion of movement possible. That is why it doesn’t seem arbitrary for Felipe Guerrero to chose to make his second film in 16mm, a format as endangered as the trade he documents. But now repetition is only an appearance: throughout a series of rolls, the documentation of a group of sugarcane workers in the Colombian jungle gains extraordinary dimensions with every layer of images and every new beginning. It’s structural film in its best shape, the one that according to P. Adams Sitney “brings out its formal configuration, and any narrative content is both minimal and a subsidiary of its structure”. In this case, this is accomplished by basing a great deal of the narration on a precise soundtrack. Corta shows that with these tools –and crossing Leon Hirszman with Sharon Lockhar (and her with Sisyphus)–, it is possible to draw sincere emotions and trap the viewers in a sweet cinematographic hypnosis.
