Echoes of the past

Objetos Rebeldes Carolina Arias Ortiz

Objets Rebelles

Director Carolina Arias Ortiz returns to Costa Rica to confront her dying father, who abandoned her when she was a child. In Objetos Rebeldes, she pieces together the fragments of her family life; in parallel, she examines the past of her native country, where many still boast about their largely European ancestry. Her personal story is interwoven with the ideas of archaeologist Ifigenia Quintanilla, a specialist in the monumental pre-Columbian stone spheres whose mysterious origin has given rise to several theories. Like an archaeological dig, this cinematic essay takes place along several different strata, its cracked objects symbolizing the historical erasure of colonized peoples. (Programming Collective)
