Alexander DUMREICHER-IVANCEANU (Amour Fou Filmproduktion)
VOLVER LA VISTA / THE REVERSED GAZE artificially puts the viewer in the role of a foreigner. Twentysix Mexicans who live in Austria and Austrians spending their lives in Mexico put together a portrait depicting their ideas of home. They employ their clichés, desires, dreams and personal experiences, attempting at the same time to localize their personal identities, and are accompanied by two camerapeople who themselves cross borders. Their gazes follow the narrators and their stories to the other country.
