THEATRE OF WAR

A DocHouse First Film
Dir: Lola Arias
Argentina / Spain / Germany / 2018 / 77mins

The dead leaders kiss, a British veteran relives an Argentinian dying in his arms, an Argentinian veteran remembers floating in the sea for 41 hours after the Belgrano was sunk.

A mix of Argentinian and British veterans are brought together to re-enact their experiences during the Falklands War. Through a handful of staged sequences, they revisit the visions that haunt them and discuss the muddy politics. Director Lola Arias experiments with their sensitive relations and burned-in memories. Can they reconcile their traumas and conflicting beliefs? Is it too painful to see the political manipulation for what it was? The line between fact and fiction is ambiguous, as they grapple with the theatrical act of war and the scars that run deep.
