The Turned Head

Short Film (16 mm Color) 1989

Told through still photos and moving pictures, a Chilean political exile seeking asylum in the U.S. is betrayed by a dancer who seduces the chair of the university department where he teaches. Told through still pictures and moving images, this early film combines dramatic narrative with political meditations in a bravura display of formal ingenuity.
