  Derby & Groma

Kara Blake

Canada, Biographical Documentary/Artist, 201317 min, Super 16mm, Color/Black & WhiteSpanish with English subtitles

 

While taking a stroll in Buenos Aires, photo collector Pablo Cruz Aguirre came across an unusual gift.  Blowing down the street was a collection of letters, postcards and photos depicting a performing duo named Derby and Groma. Desolina Merlino, alias Derby, was born 1891 of Italian descent. Samuel Salomón Gromatzky, alias Groma, was the son of Jewish immigrants in Argentina, born in 1895.  The two performed acrobatic dance routines in theaters throughout Europe and Latin America in the late 1920’s.  With the assistance of historians and collectors, the film paints a picture of Argentina’s cultural life in the early 20th century, a world from which few traces still exist. After premiering at Hot Docs in 2013, the film has continued to gain recognition at festivals like DOC NYC and the International Festival of Films on Art.

  Años de luz Years of Light

Aldemar Matias

Cuba/Brazil, History/Biographical Documentary, 201313 min, HD, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

 

In 1958, Gregorio Rivera presents himself to Fidel Castro's troops in Cuba's Sierra Maestra to fight against Fulgencio Batista's dictatorship. Known for his work as a photographer, he is ordered to fight alongside the rebel army not with a weapon, but with his camera. In AÑOS DE LUZ, “Goyo” revisits the archive of images of the Revolution to tell his story, fighting now against his fading memory. At the Amazonas Film Festival in 2013, AÑOS DE LUZ won the award for Best Documentary Short, Best Director, and Best Cinematography.
