The Hour of the Furnaces

The Hour of the Furnaces

"The man who chooses his own death is also choosing his own life." [translated.]

Recommended. A documentary of anger and chaos at the heart of revolutionary Argentina, The Hour Of The Furnaces is an important piece of history made by a people who were living through a violent time of liberation and suppression. There's a lot to unpack with this one, but it's an incredible film, even solely looking at the impossible circumstances under which it was made, and its lasting impact on a culture cannot be undervalued.
