Janaína Nagata
Janaína Nagata, brazilian film director, buys a 16mm film reel on the internet without knowing its contents: she discovers an Afrikaner family film shot in South Africa in the 1960s. These seemingly innocent images of wild animals, meals, and free time serve as the basis for a masterful enterprise in decolonial deconstruction. An absorbing “desktop documentary”, Private Footage, the director’s first film, goes back to the hints left behind in these images to unveil their underlying meaning. Over the course of a meticulous inquiry entirely led over the web, the whole history of the Apartheid is unwound from a simple amateur film reel.(Claire Lasolle)
