La forma exacta de las islas / The Exact Shape of the IslandsA film by Daniel Casabé y Edgardo Dieleke (2012)
In Prof. Firbas’ HUS 254 Latin America Today
Monday April 1, 2013, Melville Library W4550 from 2.30 to 3.50 pm
The film starts with a home movie that documents the first travel of Julieta, a PhD student, into the Falkland Islands in 2006, where she accidentally meets two Argentine veterans of the Malvinas War of 1982. The movie follows successive travels in different temporalities and spaces, including the narratives of Darwin, Fogwill, Gamerro, as well as war testimonies and the declarations of islanders, Julia and the film directors. The result is a complex weave of voices, images and scarred memories: “there are two bites torn out of the heart of every one of us, and they are the exact shape of the islands”. It is through its many crossings that this marvelous and touching movie tries to find the shapes of those bites while searching for healing and hope.
Edgardo Dieleke (Ph.D Princeton), filmmaker and scriptwriter, teaches at NYU-Bs. As. Together with D. Casabé, he directed the films Cracks de nácar (2011) and La forma exacta de las islas.
Julieta Vitullo (Ph.D. Rutgers), co-writer and character of the film, is author of Las islas imaginadas. La Guerra de Malvinas en la literatura y el cine argentinos (Bs As: Corregidor, 2012).
