Synopsis

Canadian Premiere

Jaar, Lament of the Images is a documentary that focuses on the creative process of Chilean Alfredo Jaar, one of the world’s most important contemporary artists. His works reflect important current issues, such as immigration at the US-Mexico border, the genocide in Rwanda, and the coup in Chile. Believing that art is the last bastion of liberty in society, he presents his art as a symbol of resistance. This first film focuses on this invested artist and proposes an exploration of his works influenced by the history of Latin America, all while following his exhibits in Finland, Buenos Aires, Venice, and New York. The soundtrack is composed by Alfredo’s son, Nicolas Jaar, one of the most influential artists in the world of electronic music.
