A scene from La ville des pirates , by chilean filmaker Raoul Ruiz, text Stefania Seoni


Dear Diane , dear shaded viewers,

I would like to pay tribute to  the chilean fimaker Raoul Ruiz who died less than one year ago. Here is a scene from La Ville des Pirates, it is surrealistic, visionary and baroque. The masterpiece was made in 1983.  There is no a real plot, everything is based on the dreams of the author. The photography is wonderfull with very bright colors and surreal sunsets. His last film,  la Noche de Enfrente, was presented at Cannes yesterday.
