LANDSCAPE PLUS: THE FILMS OF LAIDA LERTXUNDI

Synopsis

025 Sunset Red is a kind of quasi-autobiographical reckoning. An indiscernibility of then and now. Recollection and immediacy. The Basque Country and California. It’s a set of echoes of an upbringing by communist radicals, as a way of finding practical applications of the past in the present.

Our take

The enigmatic red that soaks through Laida Lertxundi’s short reifies the elusive act of political and personal remembrance. The imprints the director’s familial history with Communist organizing have left on her art practice are felt in the leaps between time, space, and audiovisual experimentation.
