Aphorisms of the Lake / Aforismos del Lago

Aphorisms of the Lake_2.png

After his mother falls ill, filmmaker Humberto González Bustillo flies back home to be with her. Upon his return, he memorialises his childhood, but also recounts the colonial interest in Venezuelan land, and the now crisis-stricken oil industry. This diaristic film is a meditation on grief, and a visual poem that is both mournful of, and haunted by, nostalgia.

This film has been nominated for the Short Film Award.

Aphorisms of the Lake will be followed by a live online Q&A with Humberto González Bustillo which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
