The simplest questions are the most uncomfortable ones, and therefore the hardest ones to answer. This seems clear right from the start in The Way I Feel I Like It, a film about filmmakers in which Ignacio Agüero measures the pulse of a modest, miraculous handful of film shootings that took place in Chile between 1984 and 1985 –back when cinema, like many other things, seemed destined to disappear. But far from celebratory, Agüero’s film is tremendously uncomfortable, due to the questions the director (who is always in the shot) asks his colleagues: “Why are you making this film?”, “who do you think is going to see this film?”. None of the answers are up to the level of complexity of the questions; all of them –with no exception– go off at the tangents of good intentions, mandates, and identity. On the first interview Agüero asks Luis Vera what do the characters in his film (beggars) have to do with him, and the silence and mumbling he gets as an answer are simply thundering.
