Veterans by Lola Arias, Opening
July 27 @ 11:55 am - 2:00 pmFree
Within the framework of Intersections, at the Jerusalem Film Festival, the Mamuta Art and Research Center presents Argentinean artist, theatre director, and filmmaker Lola Arias. Veterans is a 5-channel exhibition, in which soldiers re-enact traumatic war moments from the Falklands, more than 30 years later. Five films play simultaneously and the viewer can move between the different tales: The Swimmer by Marcelo Vallejo, a formal metal worker now a triathlon champion; The Voice by Daniel Terzano, a psychologist now employed at a psychiatric hospital; The Sinking of the Belgrano by Dario Volonté, a petty naval officer who now earns his living as a tenor; Last Day of War by Guillermo Dellepiane, a retired brigadier and air force pilot, and The Diary of a Soldier by Fabián Volonté, a car mechanic reading from his tattered diary, recording his experiences prior to the beginning of the war as a soldier.
