Francisco Marise’s Para la guerra explores the combat memories of “Mandarria,” a former Cuban soldier who is searching for the comrades who served in his last command. As Mandarriagoes through a series of exercises from a military manual, the director’s observation of his body and his gestures offers insight into his memories, his solitary life, and the invisible wound he still carries with him, 30 years after his final mission.
Cuba/Spain/Argentina; 2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 65 minutes; not rated.
