In A Light Revealed. Argentine experimental cinema, Pablo Marín describes images and sounds while defining and redefining concepts that were scattered, venturing words where there were silences before. The author draws maps, many times literal (traveling the places in the country and the world where the story took place), other times temporal (with family trees that outline relationships between filmmakers of the past and those of the present), in order to build a possible reading of a tradition that goes back to the first decades of cinema. Like a guardian that watches over both past and future generations of Argentine experimental cinema, A Light Revealed finds the subjective radicalities of its medium, those aesthetic experiences of the universe that make this set of particular films a fundamental part of history.
