A Family Submerged

María Alché | 92min | Argentina, Brasilien, Tyskland, Norge

  • År: 2018
  • Språk: Spanska
  • Text: Engelsk
  • Originaltitel: Familia sumergida
  • Nordisk Premiär

Livfull och ambitiös debutfilm där gränserna mellan sanning och fiktion, liksom dåtid och nutid, suddas ut.

Medan Marcela skaffat sig en stor familj så har systern Rina levt ensam kvar i minnen av föräldrarna i barndomshemmet. När Rina dör blir det upp till Marcela att städa upp i kvarlåtenskapen. Samtidigt som hon känner sig bortkommen i den nya situationen så skall de halvvuxna barnen serveras både mat och kärlek. Maken försvinner iväg på en affärsresa, och istället hittar Marcela sällskap hos en ung vän till hennes dotter, Nacho. Regissören Maria Alché själv är skådespelare i grunden, och hon låter Mercedes Moran blomma ut i varje scen som den uttrycksfulla Marcela.

María Alché

Regissör: María Alché

Maria Alche is an Argentinian film director, actress, and photographer. She studied Philosophy at Buenos Aires University (UBA), and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree at ENERC (Institute of Film and Audio Visual Experimentation). She has starred in numerous art-house films, has directed several short films, like Gulliver, Noelia, Winter 3025, among others, and produced her own photographic work, Fakes, for which she received awards worldwide.

This film comes from my urge to reflect upon the way we deal with grief, what gets transformed within us, how we spend our time, and about the vividness of living riskily. The narrative form is based on the unusual, the transitory, the continuation of situations that lead to unexpected consequences, where objects, dialogues, and spaces are linked as they push the group of people forward, like they were atoms drawn together and pulled apart. Each culture has to find a narrative form that matches its idiosyncrasy, and I believe that the nature of our national identity is related to some sort of transitory feeling, in which things can change any time. The characters in the film are conscious that they are here in transit, not really attached to anything and living in an inadequate world they constantly try to fit in, where old plans are cancelled as new ones emerge. I’m interested in provoking that sense of vertigo upon reality, in which the elements presented as essential become less meaningful to make way for new conflicts that were immersed but have started to surface surreptitiously.
