Documentary Forthnight 2013

February, 24, 5 PM

Directed by Salomé Lamas. Paulo De Figueiredo worked as a mercenary, a figure on the fringes of two worlds: power, and the revolutions that brought it to an end. Structured as a non-linear conversation between the filmmaker and his subject, the film takes place in "no man's land," a place outside of either’s comfort zone. Paulo speaks of anonymous locations and facts, fragments of violence and cruelty, and his own experiences. The filmmaker asks: What are the distinctions between reporting (facts) and literature (imagination), between authentic and artistic reality? How can you truly represent trauma, memory, and history?
