Dialogue between the arts

Aleph Iva Radivojevic

Filmmaker Iva Radivojevic garnered global attention with her documentary essay Evaporating Borders and, more recently, with her masterful editing on A Machine to Live In (Yoni Goldstein and Meredith Zielke). Now, she returns to the RIDM with a strange and delightful creation, loosely inspired by the literary work of Jorge Luis Borges. Steering clear of traditional narrative structure, this labyrinthine film distorts boundaries and carves out a space-time of its own poetic logic. Via a dozen protagonists from five continents, the many-tentacled story constantly shifts and changes, yet never loses its integrity. Existing somewhere between magic realism and documentary, Aleph is a work as challenging as it is rewarding. (Programming Collective)
