In an attempt to wrestle with Paraguay's tumultuous recent history, artist-filmmaker Paz Encina (PARAGUAYAN HAMMOCK) gives the children of Agustín Goiburú, one of the most famous and important political opponents of Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner, a space to voice their unique perspectives on the longest-running dictatorship of any South American country. The three recount stories from their childhood and the blissful innocence of youth. Now with hindsight and experience, they reckon with what really happened. This experimental work never shows its subjects, but employs incredible imagery, showcasing the natural beauty of Paraguay to hypnotic effect.
