EL CORAL QUE TRAJIMOS DE BRASIL (THE CORAL WE BROUGHT FROM BRAZIL)

MARTIN SERRA | 29 MIN | ARGENTINA | 2016

For the first time after 45 years, Argentine painter Guillermo Roux and his wife Franca Beer watch on a laptop a "lost" 16mm silent film shot in their house by filmmaker Simón Feldman during the summer of 1968 or 1969 . Their emotions change every second. On that film they (and we) can see young Guillermo working and painting into an empty swimming pool and later a lot of people around the same full pool one summer afternoon. This is the starting point for them to reflect on passage of time, happy years and old age, always involved by part of last half century Argentine’s history.
