The Unusual Subjects


An investigation into the Paraguayan dictatorship of Alfredo Stroessner (1954–89) through the memories of the children of his “disappeared” opponent, the dissident Agustín Goiburú.

Our take

Through the childhood memories of Agustín Goiburú’s children, Paz Encina traces the life in exile and disappearance of a dissident of Paraguay’s dictatorship. Absence imbues the poetic images of this evocative documentary, conveying the impact of the violent, political past on the personal present.

Critics reviews

The story of the Goiburú family is not the same as that of the Encina family, but this film is the “work of memory” that Encina must conduct.
