Orione, Dir. Toia Bonino, Argentina, 2017, 67 mins, Spanish with English subtitles


Nuanced and unsettling, Orione reflects on the inevitable imbrication of the personal and political in a Buenos Aires neighbourhood. 
 
Alejandro ‘Ale’ Robles was a gang member betrayed by a friend and killed by police. Through a series of engaging and sometimes uneasily juxtaposed fragments, director Toia Bonino evokes different aspects of his life: at one moment, the camera dwells on the warmth of his mother’s memories; at another, archival footage confronts us with the violence of his crimes. Splintering across the film, these varied visual and sonic strands resist easy assimilation into any single narrative, building a complex picture of a man – and a society – full of contradictions.
 
This film is presented and distributed by ICA CINEMA in keeping with its intention to shed light on works that push the boundaries of cinematic language and represent the under-represented on screen. It is available for bookings. Orione premiered in the UK as part of FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2018.
