FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE SHORT DOCUMENTARY

THE PHOTO OF LUZMILA

TFF 2005 Directed by Mayu Mohanna
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE THE PHOTO OF LUZMILA [TFF 2005]
A mix of interviews and archival documentary footage, The Photo of Luzmila explores the process of recollecting memory using photography. The camera serves as both catalyst and artistic tool of symbolic reparation for those in the center of Peru's two decades of violence. With the help of a photograph of their mother, the filmmakers therapeutically recall and reconcile their pasts.
