Frames of Representation: Orione + Q&A

Frames of Representation: Orione + Q&A

27 Apr 2018

The film offers insight into a society filled with contradictions, in which people have their own truths and mores and often live on the boundary of the law. - International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam

This screening is a UK premiere

Join us for a Q&A with director Toia Bonino following the screening, hosted by Maria Delgado, professor and Director of Research, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London

Nuanced and unsettling, Orione reflects on the complex interplay of the personal and political in a Buenos Aires neighbourhood. Alejandro was a gang member betrayed by a friend and killed by police. Through a series of engaging and sometimes uneasily juxtaposed fragments, Orione evokes different aspects of his life: at one moment, the camera dwells on the warmth of his mother's memories, at another, we are confronted with archival footage which captures the violence of his crimes.

Splintering across the film, these varied visual and sonic strands resist easy assimilation into any single narrative, building a complex picture of a manand a societyfull of contradictions.
