Abstract:

This article argues that Ral Ruiz's Palomita Blanca (1973), a lost film rediscovered in 1992, constitutes a unique experiment in Chilean cinema, combining elements of avant-garde cinema with concerns about national identity and cultural decolonization. By means of an analysis of Ruiz's strategies for multiplying perspectives and complicating narrative time in the film, the article examines how the film provides the basis for a novel conception of memory in Chilean cinema and for a renewed understanding of politics and aesthetics during Allende's Popular Unity period (197073).
