Film Magistery #2: El Sur/Our Childhoods’ Memories of Our Fathers

In the second episode of Film Magistery Dino talks about Erice’s The South (El Sur, 1983), a great film about a young girl and her relationship to her mysterious father. He also puts it into the perspective of his own childhood and his perception of his father. There’s also a short mentioning of Dino’s recent six DVD acquisitions. Yes yes, a Tarkovsky work is among them. Dino compares El Sur’s ambiance to Caravaggio’s use of lighting in his paintings.
Oh, and did you know Dino’s brother’s name is Elvis?
