Jorge Luis Borges
A documentary directed by Fernando Arrabal.
The film deals with Borges’s last public appearances, in Tokyo, Geneva and Milan, several weeks before his death of June, 14, 1986. As such, this film can be considered the famous Argentine poet and storyteller’s filmed cultural legacy. Working with footage of Borges in public, Fernando Arrabal also injects clips from his own film, paintings from the “Arrabal Espace” exhibition, as well as sequences shot in Milan during the summer of 1998.
