NCLAFF: Ejercicios de memoria | Memory Exercises
Directed by Paz Encina. Argentina, Paraguay, France, Germany. 2016. 70min.
Between 1954 and 1989, Paraguay suffered one of the longest dictatorships in Latin America. Agustín Goiburú, the most important political opponent to the Stroessner regime, disappeared in 1976 in Paraná, Argentina, where he was exiled. Goiburú's three children, Rogelio, Rolando and Jazmin, return 35 years later to the place of his exile... A return to their memories. This is how we begin an intimate memory exercise, telling the story of a whole country for the past decades.
