Tierra de los Padres: Fatherland

1.

An ensayo nacional.

2.

A horror film. The living dead don’t have to return as they have never gone away.

3.

A gothic slasher.  Jets of blood.

4.

The central, clearly  expressed ideas of Argentine history are the desires to kill and to die.

5.

The maudlin worship of the eternal leader.

6.

Instead of trying to awake from the nightmare of history, we want to  stay asleep and repeat the nightmare with ourselves in the role of the just and progressive killers.

7.

La Argentina no cambió ni tiene posibilidades de cambiarse. This is it.
