Potosi, the Journey

NEW HORIZONS International Competition
Potosi: le temps du voyage
dir. Ron Havilio / Israel, France 2007 / 246’
Film description

The filmmaker's honeymoon trip in 1970 led him and his wife Jacqueline, complete with backpack and camera, all through the Bolivian Andes. On their way they discovered the old silver mining city of the Incas, Potosi, once one of the biggest and most prosperous cities in the world. Three decades later they go back there again with a film camera and their three daughters. The film documents this journey, putting the footage in relation to the photographs taken during the first trip. Memory and the present overlap, creating an impressive reflection on generations and the effects of time.
Ron Havilio is a master of composing these pieces of memory and the present. Film does indeed relate a great deal of information about the rise and fall of the city of Potosi, but it also sheds light on the inner workings of the director's own Israeli family. Havilio exposes the stories behind the images, and his method lets us look deep into a reality marked by the living conditions of the viewer.
Gabriela Seidel, IFF Berlin 2007

Potosi is a film that goes against current trends. It is an invitation to make a journey into the reality and an opportunity to meditate on time, fragility, beauty and the miracle of human life.
