Department of Film and Screen Media – School of Film, Music & Theatre

This paper will consider the limits of representation by focusing on how the forces of resistance function through the concept of the event. The essayistic portrait will be defined in relation to an encounter with first person subjectivity. The possibility of this encounter will be examined through the Argentinian filmmaker Andrés Di Tella and his film Private Fiction (2019).
