In 2009, the press jumped a curious happened in Guatemala and through the media, reached international resonance: the death of lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg, shot in the street 49 years of age. But what attracted attention was not his death, which adds to the long list of violent deaths in Guatemala, but by landing on youtube, a video he recorded before he died with some controversial statements against a canvas blue, which started with a phrase:

Good afternoon, I am Rodrigo Rosenberg, and unfortunately, if you are now viewing or listening to this message, it is because I have been murdered.

Critics I will be murdered

And it was Rosenberg's lawyer Khalil Musa, who was named director of BANRURAL order to be held responsible for the internal corruption of the bench, while yet never take the charge. Musa and his daughter were killed, and Rosenberg, your defender, could become the focus of a new murder. And, in this situation, Rosenberg shot the video where his future death blamed President Alvaro Colom government. This video became a viral success on the net, and by this assumption conmocionaba someone ahead forecast his own death: it is a non-being when we are aware of its existence through video. The opposition went out with the intention of overthrowing the government, driven by these words of conspiracy, while the government denied that they had some responsibility for his death.

And I will be murdered documentary from director Justin Webster, presented at the Documenta Madrid 2013 and takes the title the very phrase uttered by the lawyer in the video, to reconstruct this case and clarify the issues that seem to have remained unresolved, invaded by the darkness of ignorance. Because soon there were doubts about the veracity of his words: was actually murdered or was it a conspiracy organized by him to try to overthrow the government?

Critics I Will be Murdered

To do this, the documentary presents briefly a country that lives in a social split: As the documentary points out, 70% of the population is indigenous and lives outside of politics, and the remaining 30% in power , is polarized between a social democratic left, and right, and everyone lives a deep distrust of the other: the left fears privatization and the advent of the power conglomerates, while the right is increasingly closer proximity of socialism. But the documentary is not intended to be political, just presents this as a backdrop in which to develop his story: the investigation into the death of Rodrigo Rosenberg.

Because I will be murdered is, basically, research on the causes of his death, and through the social chaos, brings his camera to actual individual who intends to follow. Thus, what at first looks like a political documentary, soon becomes a police documentary that allows viewing it as if it were a thriller, in fact, it is more advisable to see this piece as a detective, where we dive into the bias of the researchers' knowledge, little by little, they discover the keys to his death.

Critics I will be murdered

The footage itself is organized according to the rules of the thriller: there are striking and pivot points * dosage on the transmission of information to the viewer **, so we are living each revelation step, until a supposed knowledge Total case. Never give us the clues from the beginning, but the search experience: at this point that the film energy and ability to catch the viewer. But at the time, is its biggest flaw, because sometimes it close to a chapter of CSI. In fact, there are totally expendable resources from the approach a police drama series on television, especially the reconstruction of the events and drama, which only lead to eliminate the ability of the viewer to imagine and forces the remaining footage.

But undoubtedly the most disappointing is the case chosen a documentary would be interesting if it had political implications in the country, or defend a point of view, but the director seems to have been guided by the illness at the time of choosing the object of his documentary, and end any criticism of I will be murdered diluted itself. And is that what seemed an analysis of corruption in the country finally approaches more to a mess of skirts, as happened with the film directed by George Clooney, The Ides of March (The Ides of March), where the fascinating portrait of moral duplicity sinking political ends by the tendency to melodrama.

Therefore, it is a documentary that captures the suspense that it generated, but the director seems to have wished to avoid controversy and focus simply to generate intrigue. So, in the end, the film ends in a research exercise that actually could have been compressed to a lower footage.

Metamorphosen: live in one of the world's most radioactivity

Friday, 10 May 2013 15:30

We all know the case of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Chernobyl nuclear accidents or, more recently, Fukushima, radioactive with catastrophic effects on the surrounding area. But, however, has remained veiled to the public one of the most serious nuclear accident in the history of this form of energy production: the Mayak region, located in the vast landscapes of the uninhabited areas of Russia, the south of the Ural Mountains and near and Kazakhstan. A region of 20,000 km2 that contains a similar level of radioactivity to those achieved in Chernobyl, and where the camera plunges young German filmmaker Sebastian Mez, that this uncompromising portrait of the effects of the nuclear accident signature film for graduation in film school.

Critics Metamorphosen And is it surprising that a case still remains veiled to the public. Because at Mayak was in * 1957 ** an explosion in one of the first nuclear plants installed by the USSR, forming a menacing cloud sighted people themselves and began generating diseases and malformations among the inhabitants. These leaks began to occur in 1947 and have been repeated almost to the year 2000, but the government remained silent to avoid the discredit of the USSR. This was aided by the isolation of the area, located in that Russia will never depicted and that depopulation, could not do much to draw the attention of the press and speak out. The camera is your voice Mez, who after making an audiovisual piece about Fukushima, decided to research on the history of nuclear accidents, and this is how he discovered the case of Mayak. And with a tiny budget and only the help of an assistant, who translated from Russian to German and vice versa, plunged into the area, isolation suits, wanting to avoid the distance between your camera and the inhabitants.

Because if one thing characterizes the levels of radiation is its invisibility, becoming a constant threat, therefore, use a documentary with interviews and shots of the area, would not serve the purpose of making visible the invisible, make palpable a tragedy hidden from the view. The camera must therefore create not only represent: the role of Mez achieve visible traces generate the image of the radiation threat. And here come all the resources entity Mez integrated in the narrative.

Metamorphosen critical

Because Metamorphosen involves collecting atmospheric effects of neighborhood strives to make visible the wind constantly waving fields, and serves to symbolize the cloud of the past that created much damage in the population. Furthermore, it also makes visible the fog, snow and clouds, always visual symptoms of radiation that escapes the eyes. The camera also films with great proximity forests, but so immersed in his bosom that collects individual trees, no forest concentrations: for this, the planes glide through their trunks, where we can see traces of radiation, as if we were on a Andrei Tarkovsky film. The forest plans undoubtedly remember Ivan's Childhood Offret * or ** (Sacrifice), and the director revealed the influence of Russian filmmaker at work, something that creates a disturbing resonance, as Mez himself has moved to Russia to film his debut.

And, above all, there's water, omnipresent, and sums up its meaning in two directions: first, is the purifying element, present in all cultures and religions, and all the footage is collapsed by the sound of water that constantly glides on the other hand, the Techa river flows are among the most polluted in the world, and therefore, we have a feeling of dirty water, tainted, contaminated, which creates a conflict with the universal symbolism the liquid element. Thus, the water seems to spin all this talk of contrasts, of human life is to succeed, and radiation barriers that prevent vitalism in the region. In fact, the narrative of the accident, with the voiceover, is presented with a static shot of a lake.

Critics Metamorphosen

But what really matters to Mez is to capture everyday life in those places, which remains stagnant with no possibility of future radioactive at the strange mark that all people have already almost genetic. All film creates oppressive feeling of a life in a dialectic between the stillness and constant threat. It uses sequence shots, which condense time and impede their progress by mounting: each plane is a stagnant time. Also, everything is filmed in black and white and almost all planes are fixed, showing that immobility of the population. In the end, Metamorphosen is as if Tarr had filmed The Turin Horse still shots instead of sequence shots, or Béla Tarr and Michael Haneke collaborate in making a film together.

Only have two types of camera movement. For one, panoramic, typically 180 ° or 360 °, and revealing, in constant rotation, some ruins that were previously hidden from the camera as they were back, at other times, these panoramas reveal nothing, emptiness. On the other hand, there are planes of camera in hand, following a move when they want to generate anxiety: the case of the machine that captures the level of radiation in the area, almost bursting to exceed the limits allowed by the human body or flat back with the voice of a solitary in the middle of the night.

Metamorphosen critical

Also, all levels place the horizon line in the middle of the composition, again creating the dualism between life and death, between vitalism and nuclear threats, and creating a sense of stillness, of inability to get out of that dichotomy. And Mez shows great sensitivity in capturing the daily life of the inhabitants: he shoots his dances, daily activities and always framed their stories with extreme close-up of her face, making her face in a real landscape where you see the Traces of radioactive wave.

But what I want to collect not only the stagnant life, but the metamorphosis of life, as its title indicates. But a metamorphosis that has only one end: death. The whole movie seems to be a drift towards the disappearance, and for that, increasingly sheds the footage of human presence, and integrates also the other two elements, vegetation and animals. The first ever shot down by the wind, and the latter always close to death: he shoots sheep sacrifices fixed plane, with blood gushing from his throat, or cat eating a fish radioactive. So Mez creates a kind of life cycle, between human, animal and plant, which initiate a subtle movement within the stagnant life, the only movement is possible in an area with radioactivity: the movement toward death in a constant metamorphosis, where every subtle change is a step to degradation.

Critics Metamorphosen

However, there is a moral pitfall that catches my attention: the director has chosen not shoot people with malformations. According to him, it has decided that because prefer to suggest, and because the testimony graphics are searchable in Google. However, it can be a ejericicio of insincerity: the real challenge would have been to show the people most affected by radioactivity with the normalcy with which you shoot the other inhabitants, and always avoiding the illness. Discarding appears to result from a desire to avoid the aesthetically Mez ugly, in a film of great visual package, but that risk has been lacking in that aspect.

4 star
