Malvinas. Twenty-five years of Silence
Argentina / 2008 / 80 min / Documentary / Color
A group of drafted soldiers from the Chubut province in the Argentinean Patagonia decide to break their silence. It wasn’t easy for them to put words to their pain and narrate their experiences of the war. Malvinas, twenty-five years of silence. Testimonies for the collective memory.
April 2, 1982. Argentina, under one of the most bloody dictatorships in Latin America, decides to take back the Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands) from the British Empire.
In this harsh chapter of Latin American history, the legitimate claim of the Argentinean people for the sovereignty of the islands and the military dictatorship’s wish to perpetuate itself in power mixed together. The war lasted for 74 days and finished with the Argentinean surrender on June 14, 1982. The dictatorship fell apart soon after the end of the war, and the islands remained under the British Empire’s control.
25 years later. We spent the whole summer of 1997 with soldiers who personally experienced the war. It wasn’t easy for them to give words to their pain, but the necessity to take back these 25 years of silence and remember in order to prevent any similar conflicts to happen was key for making this film.
We hereby thank all the drafted soldiers from the Chubut province who trusted us and shared their testimonies with us, making this film possible.
Inacayal, denying our identity
Argentina / 2011 / 48 min / Documentary / Original Format HDV
During the so-called “Conquest of the Desert” (Spanish: Conquista del desierto) a group of indigenous tribes’ chiefs fought against the “huincas” (Spanishs) advance.
This documentary tells the story of chieftain Inacayal, Huiliche warrior and silenced hero, who died under unknown circumstances in the La Plata Museum in 1888. It looks into how he went from being an obedient and loyal aborigine to becoming a subversive fighter.
Through the tales of his descendants in the Tehuelche Mapuche communities in Chubut, and the impressions of renowned academics and researchers such as Osvaldo Bayer, Marcelo Valko, Walter Delrio and the GUIAS collective (Group of University Research in Social Anthropology of the La Plata University), this movie tries to bring up to light a topic ignored in the official accounts.
Inacayal, a film exploring the history of our identity.
Winner of the National Contest of Documentary Films “EL CAMINO DE LOS HÉROES” – INCAA National Institute of Film and Audiovisual Arts.
