Se La Ciudad (Be The City)

Angela Reginato

Se La Ciudad (Be The City) is an impressionistic, episodic Super-8 film collage for gallery and museum screening, as well as festival release. Reginato’s project utilizes fiction and non-fiction elements to chronicle the real-life mysterious disappearance of the artist’s family friend, Francisco Britton, during the politically-charged 1970s in Mexico. Narrated by a young girl who searches through historic documents, family memorabilia and news clippings to find out what happened to Britton, Se La Ciudad is about the way truth and memory intersect, often in contradictory ways.
