Interview: Lisandro Alonso – Eureka

It would be the longest hap between films and certainly his most ambitious project to date (it was rumored to span all the continents but the pandemic would have changed plans), Argentinean filmmaker Lisandro Alonso‘s Eureka (which premiered in the Cannes Premiere section) does indeed have connective tissues to his last feature (Un Certain Regard selected Jauja). In his sixth feature film, Alonso delves into the lives of indigenous peoples and communities, emphasizing the importance of pausing, reflecting, and reconsidering our perceptions of these individuals, particularly in the context of time and the screen. At the 2023 Marrakech International Film Festival I got to ask him about the thought process behind some of the metaphysical elements, the myth of the American West, representation, and if there are any updates on The God Beside My Bed – a project that would team him with Rick Alverson.
