“As it is generally known, in Latin the words inventing and discovering are synonyms”. Agüero puts into practice this quote by Borges with a film that is built on his own particular Aleph: his home, a source of family stories that also opens up to the country’s history and –through a simple yet original mechanism– to its inhabitants. The Chilean filmmaker was looking to make a film that would result from just opening his front door. And so he does: as he remembers and tells us about his life and the people close to him, he connects his story with the history of Chile, a country where the lifestyle was abruptly modified. But this evoking, this intimate and political intrigue will be interrupted over and over again by a series of people who knock on the door of his house. Who are they? What are their stories? Geometry and Mystery was the original title for this fascinating film with which Agüero –a man with the wisdom of those who don’t see themselves as teachers although they actually are– reminds us that cinema will always be our home.
