As stories of violence in Mexican border towns continue to make international headlines, alternative ways of making sense of this brutal reality are ever more vital. In SANTA TERESA AND OTHER STORIES, Dominican filmmaker Nelson Carlo De Los Santos Arias cleverly extrapolates from Chilean author Roberto Bolaño’s unfinished, posthumously published novel “2666” in order to explore a multiplicity of perspectives and voices in a town riven by bloodshed.
“This film arises from the urgent need to talk about violence from another position, conscious of the over-used statement ‘Third World society places violence at the center of its meaning.’ Accordingly, let’s forget the modes of representation that my cinema has used and consider that where an idea manages to take control and become hegemonic, an anarchic rebellion of multiple narratives, colors, and formats emerges in a drive toward permanent revolution. The Caribbean reinvented European tongues; my montage is inspired by that far-from-standard orality, mutating constantly into different modes of representation as it stalks its freedom.” (Nelson Carlo De Los Santos Arias)
