The Eternal Memory

Tuesday, August 8, 2023

The screening will be followed by an on-stage conversation with filmmaker Maite Alberdi. 

In their youth, Augusto and Paulina had vibrant cultural vocations – he as a television social commentator and reporter who called for his nation to never forget its traumatic political legacy, she as an acclaimed actress and later Minister of Culture for Chile. Now in their autumn years, they contend with Augusto’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and Paulina’s fears of impending loss. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Maite Alberdi (The Mole Agent) brings her wise and compassionate eye to the couple’s challenges, revealing their profoundly moving love and their commitment to individual and collective remembrance in the face of life’s tempests. – Jaie Laplante
