The films of Enrique Ramírez (born in 1979, lives and works in Paris and Chile) are often set against the backdrop of the sea. They explore travelling, exchanges between peoples of different countries and deal with political and social questions such as emigration (Horizon, Cruzar un muro) or the development of maritime trade in a globalized economy (Ocean). The other recurring theme in his work is the history of Chile, particularly Pinochet’s dictatorship. This theme is evoked in Brises through his childhood memories. Even though they are based on real events, his films are neither documentary nor fiction. The long sequence shots, the voice-overed poetic texts, the monotonous music: everything contributes to creating a dreamlike atmosphere, pulling us into something resembling a vision.
