Sylvie Moreaux and Enrique Carballido's documentary on Paraguayan artists' response and resistance to Alfredo Stroessner's dictatorship profiles some 37 painters, poets, sculptors, songwriters, dancers and dramatists, who over the course of 35 years continued to create and exercise their artistic freedom —even in the face of torture and imprisonment. An inspiring and illuminating window into the history and culture of a country too little understood in the U.S.
DIR/PROD Sylvie Moreaux, Enrique Carballido. France/Paraguay, 2011, b&w and color, 98 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
