Second Time Around (Segunda Vez), Dir. Dora García, Belgium / Norway, 2018, 94 min., Spanish with English subtitles
Spanish contemporary artist Dora García’s first feature-length film is an essayistic response to the work of Argentinian author, critic, artist and psychoanalyst Oscar Masotta (1930–1979). Second Time Around
(2018) echoes Masotta’s engagement with the concept of re-enactment through reconstructions of several of Masotta’s ‘happenings’ alongside dramatised excerpts of contemporaneous writings by Macedonio Fernández and Julio Cortázar. Through these layered duplications and repetitions, the film creates a dialogue with Masotta’s work as it explores the intersection of art, politics and psychoanalysis.
This screening is presented in collaboration with LUX with the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
