Hello, I am Alicia Migdal, Uruguayan writer and film critic.
Yesterday night I attended the worldwide premiere of the Italian film by
Ermanno Olmi Torneranno i prati (The grass will be back). It was showed at
the Italian Cultural Institute in Montevideo. It was showed to remember the
hundred years of the First World War. A poetic elegy from the trenches of
that war wich was supposed to be unique and not repeatable.

I want point out an index of topics I aim later to develop further,
thinking about this actual universe of annihilated erotization by death and
violence:

1: the bare life, the biopolitic and the permanent state of exception, as
adressed by Giorgio Agamben.
2: the femicide in Mexico and Argentina
3: the childkillngs (infanticidio) as consequence
4: My life efter: the work with the biographical data of the children and
grandchildren of the Argetinian dictatorship set up by the Argentinian
playwriter and director Lola Arias. She worked with clothes, objects,
images and materials from the concrete past of parents and grandparents.

Ana Valdés contributed with the experience of former political female
political prisoners in the representation of Antigona Oriental directed by
Marianella Morena in Montevideo.
5: The "life is worthless" from the suicidal students killing their
comrades in the American universities.
6: the war against the drugs in Mexico, to live is an accident (or hazard,
or a coincidence, sorry the word casualidad is very tough to translate, too
many aceptions :(
Primo Levi already said that in his works about the concentrationary
universe.




Hola, soy Alicia Migdal, escritora y crítica de cine uruguaya.

Anoche, en el Instituto Italiano de Cultura de Montevideo pude ver en
estreno mundial la película de Ermanno Olmi *Torneranno i prati (Volverán
los prados)*. La ocasión era por el centenario dela primera guerra
mundial.  Una elegía poética desde las trincheras de aquella guerra que se
supuso única e irrepetible.

A manera de índice para ir desarrollando precisiones sobre este actual
universo de erotización aniquiladora por muerte y  violencia,  quiero
recordar:

 1) la nuda vida, la biopolítica y el estado de excepción permanente sobre
 los que ha pensado Giorgio Agamben

 2) el feminicidio en México y Argentina

3) el infanticidio como consecuencia

 4)* Mi vida después*: el trabajo con los cuerpos biográficos reales que la
dramaturga y directora argentina Lola Arias,  ha puesto en escena con los
hijos y nietos de desaparecidos de la dictadura:  ropas, objetos, fotos y
materiales del pasado concreto de padres y abuelos.  http:/
www.lolarias.com.ar/010_bio_ing.swf. Ana Valdés aportaba la experiencia de
ex-presas políticas en la representación de * Antígona Oriental* dirigida
por Marianella Morena en Montevideo.

5) El "la vida no vale nada" de los estudiantes suicidas que arrasan con la
vida de sus pares en las universidades estadounidenses

6)La guerra del narco en México: vivir es una casualidad. Ya Primo Levi lo
decía en sus obras sobre el universo concentracionario.
