LAST YEAR AT MONTRÉAL (film-poem)
Film memories and real memories; scripts that reflect life; images and sounds from different periods that speak the same language: the farewell and the wait, distance and desire, the measure of a year. Over and over again, forever, cinema brings back to life fragments of our lost memories.
An essay on cinema's potential to transform everyday non-fiction images into fictional narratives.
"Guillermo G. Peydró's L'année dernière à Montréal (...) remembers the unmemoried some of the forces that are rarely unleashed by this art: one of demiurges (Resnais) that know not exactly what they are filming (Marker) but that trust in the sublime that only machines can provide (Epstein, Vertov)."
– Alfonso Crespo, Diario de Sevilla, 1/9/ 2013
