Segunda vez

Dora García

video, color, 16:9, Spanish spoken, English subtitles, BE/NO, 2017, 44’

The short story “Segunda vez” by Julio Cortázar is one of the most subtle narratives of the political and social climate in Argentina in the years 1976-1983, when the “National Reorganization Process” took place, a brutal dictatorship that left 30.000 people “disappeared”. The text of Cortázar, despite having all the ingredients of fantastic literature, is a very realistic description of the methods used by state terrorism in Argentina.
“Segunda vez” is the basis for the short film Segunda vez: a sequence shot, filmed in real time, in one location, focusing on dialogue and character construction.
