CONTRERAS, Maria Belen. Aesthetics and ethics of the fragment in Cuatreros (2016) by Albertina Carri. Comun. medios [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.39, pp.124-134. ISSN 0716-3991.

In this work, I analyze Albertina Carri’s Cuatreros as an essay film. Firstly, I focus on the outlining of the broken image that the film advances and also on the representational strategies that allow me to explore the thematic and properly visual features that link Carri’s work with the essay. Secondly, I analyze the ethical and aesthetic consequences of the film’s formal resources. I propose that the elaboration of a tapestry image works primarily as a non-systematic method to examine both personal and filmic memories. I offer a close reading of the audio-visual text that pays attention to its specificities as a medium, but that also goes back to concepts from the literary theorization of the essay form that are relevant to analyze the essay film. The conclusions show that in Cuatreros an interplay is established between an intimate-biographical dimension and a broader one ─namely, the issue of representing the dictatorial history of Argentina’s recent past.
