Description

LAS CRUCES

Teresa Arredondo Lugon, Carlos Vasquez Mendez | Chile | 2018 | Documentary | 80min

Both an inventive approach to political history, and a rigorously structured work of cinema, Las Cruces excavates the ghosts of a haunted landscape. Shortly after the violent coup against the Allende government on September 11, 1973, a group of nineteen union members who worked at the same paper factory were arrested and not seen again, until their corpses were found in a cemetery six years later. As we hear actors read testimony from the family members of the victims and confessions by police involved in the massacre, the filmmakers train their camera on the forest landscape where the events took place. The effect is both illuminating and cathartic, a clear-eyed study of a state-controlled crime that evokes the films Claude Lanzmann, but with a roughly hewn 16mm aesthetic.
