Segunda Vez Dora García

Film index A to Z

Second Time Around

The Grand Prix winner at the FIDMarseille Festival, Segunda Vez defies categorization, sitting somewhere between documentary, fiction and performance. At the heart of the project is Oscar Masotta, an icon of the pre-dictatorship Argentinian avant-garde, known for his happenings and his interest in Lacanian philosophy. Instead of making a straightforward biography, Dora García takes an unconventional approach that aims to situate Masotta’s ideas in present-day Argentina. Recreated happenings, discussions among ordinary people invited without explanation into a mysterious waiting room, the transportation of a bag (a body?) into a forest… Gradually, the entire country is saturated – again – in a very real feeling of unease and paranoia. Unabashedly political art.

Presented in collaboration with le Service d’action culturelle de l’Ambassade d’Espagne au Canada and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal
