It is 1992 and Marcel Proust is on his death-bed, looking through photos, remembering his life. But the real characters mingle with the fictional ones. And gradually, fiction wins out over reality. His life's only sense lies in the reality of his work, and his work streams before his eyes. His literary characters people his memories like a stereoscope projection on the wall of his room, coming to life in the self-contained world of his small apartment on the Rue Hamelin. The happy days and lost paradises of his childhood alternate with the more recent memories of his social and literary life. The drama of the war, closely examined from the viewpoint of the small circles of Paris society, is transformed into a vast social comedy. In the spreading twilight the shape of post-war society hovers on the horizon

"On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life--a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama"--Container

In this semi-documentary film, patterned after Bertolt Brecht's Refugee Conversations, Ruiz explores what it means to live in exile. Shot in 1974, Dialogues of the exiled chronicles the conversations of Chileans in Paris, who resolutely hang onto their cultural identity while navigating life in another country."--Container

"'Eleven years separate these lines from the first part of my Poetics of Cinema. Meanwhile the world has changed and cinema with it. Poetics of Cinema, 1 had much of a call to arms about it. What I write today is rather more of a consolatio philosophica. However, let no one be mistaken about this, a healthy pessimism may be better than a suicidal optimism.' Following his research in Poetics of cinema, 1 on new narrative models as tools for apprehending a fast-shifting world, Raul Ruiz with Poetics of cinema 2 makes an appeal for an entirely new way of filming, writing, and of conceiving the image."--Cover
