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
