La telenovela errante

The Wandering Soap Opera
Raúl Ruiz, Valeria Sarmiento
Chile 1990, 2017

LA TELENOVELA ERRANTE was the first film Raúl Ruiz shot after the end of the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in 1990. It is now fully realized by his widow and editor, Valeria Sarmiento.
“The film revolves around the concept of soap opera. Its structure is based on the assumption that Chilean reality does not exist, but rather is an ensemble of soap operas. There are four audiovisual provinces, and the threat of war is felt among the factions. The political and economic problems are immersed in a fictional jelly divided into evening episodes. The entire Chilean reality is viewed from the point of view of the soap opera, which acts as a revealing filter of this same reality”. (Raúl Ruiz)
