Films by Leandro Katz

Two half-hour films by the Argentine-American artist. El dia que me quieras (The Day You'll Love Me, 1997) mixes color with black and white in a poetic meditation on the famous 1967 photograph of Ernesto Che Guevera's corpse surrounded by his Bolivian captors; the film?s investigation is threaded through an extended contemporary interview with the photographer, Freddy Alborta, and a Jorge Luis Borges text adapted and read by Katz. The Visit (1986), a black-and-white metaphysical and absurdist thriller with New York and New Jersey settings, has plenty of poetic conceits of its own, though it's more self-conscious about them. Both films are notable for their cinematography (by Mark Daniels and Victor Vondracek, respectively) and their haunting and haunted styles.
