A Social Genocide

A Feature film by Fernando E. Solanas

Production year : 2004


    The dramatic circumstances which we are living out bring me back to my very beginnings in the cinema, thirty-five years ago, when my search for a political identity and my desire to struggle against the dictatorship led me to shoot The Hour of the Furnaces. Circumstances have greatly changed, but the consequences of the neo-liberal plan have today proved so disastrous that, once again, I am forced to bear witness to memories and testimonies by composing a living fresco based on what we have supported and endured over the past twenty-five years, from Videla's dictatorship to today. It is in this manner that I wish to contribute to the urgent debate that Argentina, Latin America and the world at large are conducting, which, as its driving force, the certainty that, faced with dehumanized globalization, "another world is possible".
