Daydreaming, that's the cinema

Por sumily

With a smooth and exact handling of cuts and editing, the documentary The Rest I Make Up by the filmmaker Michelle Memran at the Miami Festival, is one of those films that could be left without words, because although the musical selection makes it splendid, The strength of moving images and photography, as a tribute to the beginnings of cinema, puts before the eyes of the audience the life, inspiration and virtuosity of María Irene Fornés and leaves us the indelible teaching that there is much more to delve into the human mind.

Journalist, artist and filmmaker, Michelle Memran, for almost two decades she has carried out an arduous job as a researcher and reporter in the city of New York. Although he has also written about theater for Newsweek, The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail and the American Theater magazine.The Rest I Make Up is his first film, which after seeing, marks the viewer forever.

It opens the doors of its 35th edition at the Miami Film Festival. This 2018 will exhibit more than 100 films, many of them world premieres, in various halls of the city, with the participation of some 200 guest filmmakers of the likes of Isabelle Huppert, Carlos Saura, Mateo Gil, Samu Fuentes, Jason Reiman and Djimon Hounsou.

Directed by Jason Reitman and starring Charlize Theron, Tully, is the feature film that kicks off the Festival, a story that has moviegoers on hold. A presentation of prizes and tributes to luminaries of the cinema is planned, as the legendary Spanish director Carlos Saura and the multifaceted actress of Elle, the French Isabelle Hupert, and among the festival's privileged events are also the world premiere of Spanish filmmaker Mateo Gil, The Laws of Thermodynamics, and the North American premiere of the documentary Dolphin Man, about Jacques Mayol, master of free-lung diving, and his work with dolphins of the Miami Seaquarium in the fifties.

There is also the Cuban film Sergio y Serguéi, by Ernesto Daranas, which according to some, propitiates the ideal gear with films like Apollo 13 (Ron Howard, 1995), Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón, 2013) and The Martian (Ridley Scott, 2015 ).

However, one of the jewels of the festival and the expected screenings is the surprising documentary made by the New York journalist, artist and filmmaker Michelle Memran: The Rest I Make Up / An opera prima that deals with the famous Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés, a woman appreciated as the greatest teacher of American theater of today, teacher of artists and writers of recognition Nilo Cruz.

The cover letter for Fornés to enter the avant-garde that generated the creation of Off-Off Broadway was his first play. With it, he broke the classical laws, guided only by intuition and a question that was repeated as a leitmotiv in search of all the answers: What does it mean to be a human being?

On this occasion, Memran tells the story about the friendship between two women united despite the enormous distance of years and despite dementia. A film where spontaneity, creativity, genius and madness mark the way to go. The Rest I Make Up is also a tribute to the conscience beyond its limits.
