REUNIÓNIn its 2018’s edition, INPUT, our tutoring space for film projects in development co-organizez with Fundación Luis Seoane, Reunión, by Ilán Serruya, was one of the selected works. Some months later, the film was finished and had its world premiere in DocLisboa. In our 2019 edition, we would like to close this cycle sharing with our audience the film, that will be introduced by its director. A project that crystallized in its final form with the help of INPUT, and that is an example of what we think is the purpose of this program.REUNIÓN
Ilan Serruya, España, 2018, video, 65 min.
With sustained emotional suspense, taking its time and its distance, with patience and also with intensity, Reunión looks at a long postponed reunion, set in the abrupt landscape of Reunion Island in an ironic play on words. It’s the director’s reunion with his father in an attempt to resume what seems to be an impossible dialogue, enveloped by unhealed wounds. And the days seem to be giving way to that vegetation, those rocks and that pool, in which silences and bodies talk with unusual eloquence.
