Synopsis

In 1962 Joris Ivens was invited to Chile for teaching and filmmaking. Together with students he made this short film. Contrasting the prestigious history of the port with the present, this is a portrait of the city built on 42 hills, with its wealth and poverty, its daily street life and activity.

Our take

This collaboration between Joris Ivens and Chris Marker fascinates not just for its subject matter—daily life in the titular Chilean seaport city—but the traces of their distinct points-of-view. A fertile dynamic emerges from the realism of Ivens’ images and the fluid associations of Marker’s prose.
