The Other Day
NAME OF FILM: THE OTHER DAY
DIRECTOR(S): Ignacio Agüero
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Ignacio Agüero fashions a documentary that manages to encompass his family and national history, Chile’s economic problems, identity, and nature via the most low-key of approaches: the film is shot primarily inside his home and through a door that leads to the street, establishing a clear line between the self and the world. Beautifully photographed, this impressive work locates the profound through family heirlooms and encounters with strangers who come knocking.
