The Eternal Memory (La memoria infinita)

Latin Wave

Winner of the Sundance Film Festival award for “World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary,” the latest by Oscar-nominated director Maite Alberdi (The Mole Agent) tells the story of a couple together for more than two decades. Augusto is a well-known television journalist who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Paulina, an actress and former minister of culture, is now his caretaker. A highly emotional film, The Eternal Memory is the tale of a man who has fought to prevent national atrocities by the military dictatorship but now struggles to preserve his own memory.
