Review

Mercedes Gaviria comes back to Colombia from Argentina, where she studied sound mixing for films. She starts working as a staff for a new film his father directs: her father is the famous Víctor Gaviria, the first Colombian filmmaker invited to the Cannes Film Festival, and Mercedes grew up closely watching him working. Her feelings for her father fluctuates between admiration toward an enthusiastic senior filmmaker and some other feelings for someone she has known for a long time as a family member. When Mercedes was little, Víctor frequently filmed the family to keep a record. By putting together the family archive of these family videos, scenes from shooting for Víctor’s new film, and Víctor’s reflection as a filmmaker, Mercedes constructs a calm and thoughtful story to talk about the family and father-daughter relationship. This film is more than a private diary. It is a film about a film, addressing questions regarding the place of women in the film industry based on her experience as a student in film and staff for his father’s film project. It also speaks to the idea of a “male gaze” and women’s representation in cinema. (CHUN Jinsu)
