Who knows the political context of the film Kamchatka? 3
Argentine film Kamchatka with Ricardo Darren and Cecilia Roth!
I need to know the political context (statistics, disappearances, censorship, etc.)
Kamchatka, a remote and unknown place located somewhere on the map: the right place to oppose victory in the TEG (War Strategy and Strategy) war table game. Resistance is also a strategy used by the main character in the film. The year 1976 has passed and Argentina finds itself in the midst of a military dictatorship, its allies, friends and neighbors are missing as victims of Triple A and everyone else can be relocated and never return. Far from being a political film or a pamphlet, Kamchatka takes this context as the starting point for a process that focuses on the daily lives of a family that feels threatened and decides to hide. Is. Without much preamble and explanation or justification, again (Cecilia Roth), a father (Ricardo Darwin) and his two young children. Yes, it is a reference to a continuous dictatorship that rules the country's destiny after keeping the family in the villa. Apart from what other data is left on television and the couple's work (Guddu's father, again a scientist), we don't know what their activities are, where they go each time and what they are, where you are. Time becomes an age that acts only as a stimulus, a constant threat. Lucas' character also provides information to little Harry, as described by some of his new friend's gifts, but punishes himself with the wrong words whenever he interferes too much. There is a balance between drama and comedy in the tone of the film, and a certain tension that suggests that the worst could happen at any time. However - and for the story - there is no less success in Kamchatka and, when it is supposed to happen, it comes through the eyes of the narrator (boy) and therefore the viewer.
