Carlos Mayolo, Luis Ospina - Agarrando pueblo 

Filmed in Cali and Bogotá, Agarrando pueblo follows an unscrupulous film director named Alfredo García, played by Mayolo himself, as he and his cameraman (played by Eduardo Carvajal, the film’s real-life cinematographer who worked on most films produced in Cali during those decades) move around both cities looking for unwilling subjects for a documentary commissioned by German television. Shot in 16mm, the film alternates between colour frames of footage shot by the directors and black-and-white images depicting the process of filming and other action off-camera. Beggars, abandoned infants, street performers and any mildly underprivileged-looking individual – such as a woman who, interrupted in her daily errands, unleashes a stream of expletives before aiming her bag at the camera – are fair game as the crew fulfils its quotas of poverty, though not without a certain sense of remorse. —Michèle Fague

fuckyeahrobertorossellini:

Stromboli presents a foreign woman whose revelation of the island will be all the more profound because she cannot react in a way that softens or compensates for the violence of what she sees, the intensity and the enormity of the tunny-fishing (‘It was awful …’), the panic-inducing power of the eruption (‘I am finished, I am afraid, what mystery, what beauty, my God …’)”

Gilles Deleuze, Cinema 2, 1989
