This is an essay on how to represent war, performed by former enemies. British and Argentinian veterans of the Falklands/Malvinas war come together, spending months together to discuss, rehearse and re-enact their memories 35 years after the conflict. In 1982, Argentina and UK fought the Falklands/Malvinas War. The war ended with the British military victory and took about 1.000 lives, both British and Argentinean. While the conflict took place years ago, the sovereignty of the islands is still in dispute. The film playfully switches between reality and fiction, spontaneity; exploring how to transform a soldier into an actor, how to turn war experiences into a story.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
