Unarchive juxtaposes the filmmaker’s father’s life with the political history of Chile – his birthplace – over the past century. It reflects on how we remember and how we forget, and the role of the camera in transcending the complex place in between.

Director Biography - Cecilia Araneda

Winnipeg-based Chilean-Canadian filmmaker and curator Cecilia Araneda’s works have screened at venues such as Visions du Reél, Ann Arbor, Images, Jihlava, TIFF Wavelengths, Anthology Film Archives and Maysles Documentary Center. Retrospectives of her short works have been held in Buenos Aires, Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and she has received countless awards both nationally and internationally for both her works and her filmmaking career. Aesthetically, Araneda's art practice is strongly rooted in the examination of private and public memory as it connects to identity, consciously working against the idea of the fully controlled image. Most well-known her work in analogue film, Araneda works in experimental, documentary and fiction forms.
