Let’s Talk About Politics
Let’s Talk About Politics is an experimental film that uses dream sequences interspersed with ironic social commentary. Set in an unnamed Latin American Country, Gelmini presents the viewer with images of corrupt officials and military men.
An opulent setting of sloth and puppets, signifying abuses of power, is intercut with beautiful shots of a man making love to himself in a mirror while his lover lays dying on the bed.
The soft, gauzy focus of the shots give the film a beautiful and romantic feel to contrast its biting satire.
