Thursday, October 23 | Juan Moreira at Anthology Film Archives

Featured Screening: Juan Moreira at Anthology Film Archives. Post by Zoë Laird:

As the cowboy is to America, the gaucho is to Argentina. Embodying the spirit of the working class hero, the gaucho became a symbol of the struggle facing the poor. During the 19th gauchos were grossly discriminated against due to lower class status and dark skin tone, causing much dissent and anger at politicians. The famous gaucho Juan Moreira fought back against the political oppressors. He became notorious for his impeccable skill as a knife-fighter, having never lost a fight until his death. To this day, Moreira represents an important part of Argentinian history and identity, as a symbol of revolution and working class strife.

Juan Moreira, the film directed by Leonardo Favio in 1973, begins at the end, where Moreira’s widow crying silently at his funeral. The rest of the film is told in flashback, starting from his first killing of a man who owed him money. From there, Moreira kills any man who dares to test him, including various policemen, politicians and other authority figures. In order to survive, he must be feared. He and two comrades end up as body guards for a politician, but this job ends when they decide that there is no honor in killing upon request. Moreira then offers to guard his previous employer’s political opponent—a fatal mistake which leads to a grisly stand-off in a brothel.

One of three films made about Moreira, Favio’s interpretation is characterized by its fantastic close ups of the violence perpetrated by the gaucho. The knife fights are edited with great ingenuity, involving quick cuts to severe angles, mimicking the adrenaline pumping through the veins of this killer. The camera is constantly moving, forming elaborately long takes, carefully building pressure and slyly watching as chaos explodes. There is a foreboding sense of urgency—the constant fear and deep anxiety that accompanies a man with no chance for a life, only hope for survival.

From the sublime sunsets of the Argentinian countryside to the field of burning crosses twinkling against the dead of night, Favio is a true auteur, experimenting with the personality of the cinematic medium to tell a harrowing story of suffering and oppression, the dramatic story of Juan Moreira. —Zoë Laird
