Review

Rojo is a whole new challenge compared to Benjamin Naishtat’s previous two films History of Fear (2014) and El Movimiento (2015). He still attempts to combine political imagination with cinematic rhetoric, but the narrative tension and genre adventure is something new. In the mid-1970s, a suspicious man arrives at a restaurant in a quiet local city of Argentina. The man then starts insulting a lawyer named Claudio and brings high tension into the restaurant. The strange man is humiliated and abandoned there. That night, Claudio is found dead and the hidden seal of secrecy is open. Based on the political situation of Argentina, this allegory emphasizes the geopolitical metaphor that enriches the narrative and style. The film attempts to provide a meta-commentary by introducing reenactors of legendary American actors. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Benjamin NAISHTAT
 
Benjamin Naishtat’s debut film History of Fear (2014) was a profound work in need of close inspection. The film declared the emergence of a new auteur that copes with violence through metaphors of fading beings, and won the Grand Prize of the Jeonju IFF 2016 International Competition. The following year, Naishtat created his second film El Movimiento (2015) for the Jeonju Cinema Project. An apocalyptic black-and-white film, El Movimiento opens up a passage of speech in the artist’s search for fascism’s origin. In his recent Rojo (2018), Naishtat adopts a Brian De Palma-esque split screen while maintaining the conventional soap-opera framework. His script overcomes the genre conventions by connoting how violence proliferates in the thriller genre. Rojo won best director Silver Shell at the San Sebastian International Film Festival 2018.
