Raoul Ruiz: Against Ignorance Fiction!

Year2016 Duration63 min. DirectorAlejandra Rojo

“Of the many men who I am, who we are, I can’t find a single one”. This quote, which opens a poem by Neruda, can serve us as a compass for Alejandra Rojo to enter the unfathomable and varying work of the Chilean filmmaker, Raoul Ruiz, who lived in France and died in 2011, having directed over a hundred films, many of which are lost and may others yet to be discovered. Raoul Ruiz, Against Ignorance Fiction!, a title that calls upon his desire to get rid of the ties of narrative film and the rigid production schemes, highlights his name in French to point out his duplicity as a person and invites us to remove each of the layers of the director of Mysteries of Lisbon (2010), possibly hoping to find what defines him.
