Looking for Larisa

Buscando a LarisaMexico, 2012

Sunday, April 7th – 3:00 pm – Wealthy Theatre

Documentary – Director: Andrés Pardo  |  N/R – 1:19 min.

Drawn from more than 2,000 feet of Super-8 film home movies shot between 1970 and 1980, purchased at a Mexican flea market 30 years later by director Andrés Pardo. In screening the reels, he finds episodes of the childhood of the charming and expressive Larisa filmed by her father, and stumbles onto the story of a family that somehow becomes disconnected from its memories. The filmmaker teams up with photographer Santiago Cassarino to create a documentary that searches for answers and ultimately, Larisa.
