FRAMES OF REALITY: NEW FILM FROM MEXICO
Intimacies of Shakespeare and Victor Hugo / Intimidades de Shakespeare y Victor Hugo
by Yulene Olaizola
(2008, 80 minutes, documentary)
“Dipping a toe into (early) Errol Morris docu waters, Yulene Olaizola sustains a strange, unsettling mood” - Variety
Yulene Olaizola’s debut film is a thought-provoking portrait of two lonely and strangely intertwined friends. For years, Olaizola’s grandmother Rosa told stories of a handsome young lodger. Living under (and on top of) her roof in the 1980s, he painted strange pictures on the walls and played an important role in Rosa’s emotional life. But this picture of a pleasant, harmless and creative young man slowly gives way to a shocking end.
Intimacies won Best Film at the10th Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Film, Best Documentary at the Lima Latin American Film Festival, and Miami Dade College Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 Miami Film Festival.
