In the form of a filmed epistolary conversation, two young filmmakers discuss film, present and past family, heritage, and maternity. The personal and profound reflections—which are embodied in the graceful images taken day-to-day—are suddenly echoed by the political emergency of a country.
In the form of video letters, two filmmakers talk to each other. One lives in Spain. The other lives in Chile. Even though they live in an era when texting and cellphone use is a norm, they stick to sending off and receiving filmed images as if they still lived back in the days when people corresponded through letters. At first, their video letters were rather personal. However, once Sotomayor, who was walking on a street in Chile, filmed a protest against a fare increase, the film takes a quick turnaround in the plot. Now the interaction between public and personal history gets highlighted, expanding the scope of the film as if it is about to explode. This film conveys yet another message: one can never predict a filmmaker’s artistic talent based on the size of the projects that he or she has been working on. (Sung MOON)
