In this companion piece to Solanas' films Tangos and Sur, 17 yr. old Martin sets out an odyssey through Latin America to find his father, last heard of working as an anthropologist in Brazil. He hopes his journey will serve as an important rite of passage to resolve his search for his identity. He sets out by bicycle, wending his way from Tierra del Fuego to Peru, the Andes highlands, and then on to the Amazon, finally reaching the Brazilian gold mine where his father now works as a prospector. Along the epic journey, Martin experiences Latin American reality and myth, and witness the absurdities and contradictions which the director, Fernando Solanas, believes represent modern-day Argentina

A. K. by Chris Marker( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Multi media play inspired by contemporary events and refracted through Franz Kafka's The trial, Not Yet It's Difficult (NYID) decodes the matrix of technology and society. K fuses hard-core physical action, digital technology, sonic architectures and new texts to portray the dark, humorous and violent world of democracy in the Information Age. Part social realism, part science fiction, part fable, part documentary, K lays bare our fragile social apparatus in a hyper-real tsunami of savage absurdism."--Container
