Raoul Ruiz

The Chilean filmmaker, Raoul Ruiz, has made over one hundred feature-length films. An impure cinematic art of shadows and digressions in which "it is not about making the public believe as it is about showing how to create illusion". His films are not works of fiction, but on fiction. Close to the literary universe of the works he has adapted for film (e.g. Kafka, Proust, Stevenson, Dürrenmatt), Ruiz has also written essays where he lays bare a poetic, and political, vision of cinema, refusing the linear narrative and the "theory of the central conflict" omnipresent in Hollywood.
