Jonathan Perel turns his camera to four towns in the province of Tucumán. Each is named after a military officer who died “in the fight against the subversives”. The film is presented as a series of images that include yellowed blueprints for the towns, old archive photographs, and images of the towns today. We rarely see the locals in these still shots, which focus on the now rickety infrastructure from the period. Life can be heard outside the frame, like in a ghost town. Perel appears to be reflecting on the impossibility of knowing what happened in this horrific chapter while exploring the myriad forms of memory. (Wendy Gosselin)
