Nuanced and unsettling, Orione reflects on the inevitable imbrication of the personal and political in a Buenos Aires neighbourhood.
Alejandro ‘Ale’ Robles was a gang member betrayed by a friend and killed by police. Through a series of engaging and sometimes uneasily juxtaposed fragments, director Toia Bonino evokes different aspects of his life: at one moment, the camera dwells on the warmth of his mother’s memories; at another, archival footage confronts us with the violence of his crimes. Splintering across the film, these varied visual and sonic strands resist easy assimilation into any single narrative, building a complex picture of a man – and a society – full of contradictions.
Orione premiered in the UK as part of FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2018.
