Fragments from Algiers (2019-ongoing)

Fragments from Algiers is an investigation in progress that explores the event of the first Third World Cinema Committee held in Algiers in 1973, retracing the steps of a group of South American friends that attempted to film a documentary about the decolonizing movements in the region. Experimenting with documentary forms and modes of installation the project explores the revolutionary potential of friendship and imaginatively reconstructs these friends’ trip through the Algerian desert and a film project that never materialized. The first iteration of the project was a short film shot in Súper 8 and completed in 2019.
