I am convinced that the best gifts are those that make no excuse, those who are born wild in all circumstances, in a night of drinks with amig@s, in a metro ride, on a working x day. Gift from the impulse is to meet the agenda with their odious preset dates and their lack of amazement and doing memory, I remember making several years ago between greetings and laughs, I gave a friend the novel blood and the Esperanza of Nicomedes Guzmán. We were discussing strong with Aldo, everyone defending his look of how build a better country: he faced me with ideas that «poor is poor because it wants to be» or «everything is hard in this life»; I faced it with that should be never forget our native Lota and above all, we were heirs of working families hit by the usual suspects. It was in that feverish talks which ended up giving him an old edition of this landmark work in our history.
Grace dare Petit Frère is a documentary directed by filmmakers Roberto Collío and Rodrigo Robledo portraying the challenge experienced by the Haitian community when you decide to migrate to our country, along with some forms of crisis happening when we We find these new neighbours. Wilner Petit-Frere, a Haitian who shared their days being first-time father, employee of a petrol pump and creator of a newsletter in creole for their community, serves as the voice anchor that leads us along this Odyssey.
There had enough risk in how filmmakers they offer us this story, starting with a kind of detachment from an authorial voice and betting because it is Wilner and his Chronicles which determine the development of the piece. Redirect optics and give the baton to the other – which wants to portray – so you drive the movements of this story ends up being a tremendous success. Just stop at moments like when Petit-Frere and his spouse June, listed articles to greet the son waiting; or when shown a public swimming pool a summer afternoon and how a group of Haitian and Haitian it enjoyed in community living with their peers – who were born here – or discussions in any Assembly of this when it comes to organize against this immigrant population new home living.
Another resource that shines brave is the cast running parallel narrative axis. A white cloth that fills of strokes during the documentary and especially fascinating allegory that migration is a crossing as powerful as if it were an expedition to Mars commanded by one more vehiculo-robot a haitiano-astronauta, configure a route showy, unprejudiced, one in which the essence is good once meet the strangeness, embrace without regard to otherness.
A gift need not wonder that in spite of so much history behind nosotr@s, concepts such as justice, the organization or true freedom continue to be what bothered the officiality and all arms which constitute it. No wonder watching so much television far from mere citizen pulse, not strange to see so much dissociated authority of our daily reality, and therefore this seems to be a perfect time to make us a sweetie. It’s time that we return to tell stories such as the novels of Guzman or Wilner bulletins. These are those that remind us that in spite of so much misery and sacrifice, still vibrates the possibility to recover the dignity, love ourselves in the difference, give us a better version of country.
