In Between The Lands of Fiction and Fact
26 June 2007 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

The film mixes fiction and documentary, tracks down the relationship between separate events which basically occurred in different times but apparently connected by military dictatorship beginning with March 24, 1976 in Argentina. The inspiration of the film is mainly "to conserve the memory, not to give in to the mercy of the powerful and continue the fight."

This drama-documentary opens with reconstructing the process of shooting a short action film in Super 8 by three children about 12 years old during spring 1973 in Buenos Aires. As they have very limited Super 8 raw film, later in the film we learn that those three friends will have to only shoot a very little story of kidnapping and rescue.

And then following this opening scene, the film shifts to the night of March 24, 1999 and starts to reconstruct memory rather in a very wider sense. Damian and Sonetchka, two dwarfs, meet accidentally, take a walk for chat and fall in love each other in the streets of Buenos Aires. Sonetchka tells about her wish to find out where her lost mother could be.

Meanwhile the film gathers the testimonies of the mothers and the grandmothers of Plaza del Mayo, the members of H.I.J.O.S. and the survivors of the attack to A.M.I.A. (Argentian Jewish Association was attacked July 18, 1994 in the capital city during which two childhood friends of director Hector Faver died as well).
