Los versos del olvido
Los versos del olvido deals with the ‘ethical demand to remember the past and resist the violence of forgetting’, in the words of filmmaker Alireza Khatami. The film provides a powerful metaphor for the workings of memory and is a poetic tribute to those who fight for justice for the unknown.
Los versos del olvido (2017) is Khatami’s first full-length feature film. The film won a number of prizes, including the Orizzonti Award for Best Screenplay and the FIPRESCI international film critics’ prize (Best Debut Film) at the Venice Film Festival. [source: IFFR]
