The Exact Shape of the Islands is a documentary shot in the remote Malvinas / Falkland islands, an almost unknown space, mainly remembered because of the 1982 war between Argentina and the UK. The film tells the story of two trips. The first one shows the return to the islands of two Argentine ex-combatants, through the amateur camera lens of Julieta, a young woman who is doing research on the literature of the war. The second trip, in 2010, records Julieta’s return to Malvinas, exploring the consequences, not only of the war, but also of the personal contacts she established during her first trip.
Followed by a conversation with the film’s directors NYUBA Professor Edgardo Dieleke and Daniel Casabé.
