Manojhara – In the Region of Death /1969 / Spanish, Guarani

FiC Rating: 3.5/5
Dir:  Dominique Dubosc

Why FiC recommends?
1) A classic short documentary about decay and loneliness filmed inside Paraguay’s Santa Isabel leper colony. It details the day to day life and reveals the thoughts of the inhabitants in the leper colony. 
2) The film starts out somewhat normal with a negative colour but left me speechless and thinking. If you have watched Jean-Daniel Pollet’s L’ordre (1973) and Forough Farrokhzad’s The House Is Black (1963), don’t miss this obscure masterpiece!
