  • Stevie's rating of the film Planas: Testimonio de un etnocidio

    Marta Rodriguez and her partner Jorge Silva did some fantastic work. This is yet another example of this. Their work is unfortunately very difficult to see but I urge anyone who has the chance to do so to grab it eagerly. Silva's photography is poignant and poetic as his camera lingers on the faces of the people. I've been watching a lot of political cinema recently and their work ranks with anything else I've seen.
