Fifth about The Seventh


Guarnieri: I need to be upfront about this: I have been involved with this project, in a producer capacity, since before it got funded; however, I have a commitment, now made explicit, to make a post in this blog about every film I watch. I hope to be as objective as one can about a subjective matter such as taste in films. Francisco Guarnieri’s documentary about his grandfather is deeply personal, touching and poetic, skirting away from the simple fact-listing. The variety of material used (interviews, films, private audio recordings) enriches the experience, as it is through them that we get to know his work (politically charged, and full of very beautiful words) and, therefore, himself.
