World premiere! Silvia Malagrino in person!

Award winning artist and educator Silvia Malagrino’s career spans over the past 20 years. Conversations At The Edge is proud to present the world premiere of her new documentary, Burnt Oranges. Seeking to unravel the fabric of complex long-term effects and repercussions, personal and social, of her native Argentina’s 1970’s state terrorism, Malagrino travels to Buenos Aires. Juxtaposing an intimate first person witness narration with interviews, documentary and re-created footage dealing with issues of memory, historical time, identity, love, loss and accountability, the doc celebrates the ongoing individual and collective efforts to process, to confront, and to heal the effects of the political violence of the past. In Burnt Oranges, Malagrino explores the intricacies and the conflicts of memory and how the past reverberates in the present (KJ Mohr). 2005, Silvia Malagrino, Argentina/USA, 90 min, video.
