Eduardo Menz – Pinochet’s Women (Canada 2005, 11:43 Mins)

In this experimental short, the viewer is forced to role-play through the repeated employment and alteration of the text, sound and image until his or her expectations have been truthfully realized. The video examines class structure, the meaning of beauty and forgotten history through two very different but significant women during Pinochet’s brutal regime of the late 1980s.


Eduardo Menz (born in 1977 in Canada) completed his undergraduate program with a minor in photography and a specialization/major in film production at Concordia University. He is a member of the Double Negative Collective who showcase international experimental filmmakers’ works. His film work has always attempted to transgress and interweave the boundaries of what defines fiction, documentary and experimental film genres.
