Araya (Venezuela/France 1959)

Dir.: Margot Benacerraf

The restoration of Margot Benacerraf’s brilliant film Araya completes missing parts in the memory of documentary filmmaking. In the peninsula of Araya in northeastern Venezuela, the salt miners and the fishermen continue their traditional ways of working. With arduous work and under cruel weather conditions, they sustain themselves: men, women, boys, and girls, circling the day from dawn to dusk in a balanced and precise dance. Benacerraf’s eyes and heart gather these distant people, into the lap of the workers of the whole world in a spectacular poetic course. (90 min., Span., Eng. & Heb. subt.)
