The State of the World

Los territorios Ivan Granovsky

Film index A to Z

Les territoires

Iván is a young movie producer who’s used to fiascos. He’s also the son of a brilliant Argentinian journalist. Since he was a kid, Iván has had an obsession with learning the names of world capitals. Now in his thirties and still learning, he decides, after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, to visit the world’s conflict zones as a self-proclaimed war correspondent. It isn’t what you’d call easy... Filmmaker Iván Granovsky succeeds in his attempt to make a political film that’s both profound and hilarious. Putting himself in front of the camera after the fashion of Nanni Moretti, with his hesitations and bloopers, Granovsky takes us around the world. His deadpan delivery and creative, dynamic approach inspire us to question our relationship with information – and with ourselves.
