A documentary by Fermín Álvarez Rivera about an independent filmmaker that gave Argentina a new cinematic identity.
Filmmaker and UCLA professor Jorge Prelorán (1933-2009) documented Argentina as nobody else did before or after him, shooting more than 60 ethnobiographical films. TRACES AND MEMORY OF JORGE PRELORÁN (HUELLAS Y MEMORIA DE JORGE PRELORÁN) is an intelligent and sensitive documentary that turns the camera on Prelorán, telling the story of his prolific career, his personal life and the ways in which he gave Argentina a new cinematic identity.
An homage to Jorge Prelorán for his contribution to Argentine Cinema will be made before the screening of this film on his work, and after the screening discussion will follow with his partner and widow Mabel Prelorán, and representatives of the Consulate of Argentina in Los Angeles and UCLA.
