Harto De BorgesStreaming Video - 2006
Borges is fed up-with Borges. He repeatedly changed his writing style to get free of him, yet always felt fated, in the end, to be associated with his literary alter ego. This impressionistic program creatively blends archival footage, interviews, film clips, and artwork in an effort to pin down the man behind the mythic persona. Contemporaries Ariel Dorfman, Mempo Giardinelli, Martin Caparros, Luis Sepulveda, and Diego Curubeto, plus the late Borges himself, offer their insights into the life and literature of the enigmatic Latin American writer. According to Borges, anyone who reads his work and says, "Ah, that is Borges," has missed the point-and the real Borges.
