While teaching at Duke in the mid-1990s, legendary Chilean filmmaker Raúl Ruiz gifted to the university’s special collections library (now the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library) 166 reels of moving image prints, soundtracks, and negatives from 19 of his productions. One of these, La Telenovela Errante, remained unfinished upon Ruiz’s death in 2011. In 2016, a group of Chilean filmmakers set out to reconstruct the film. Actress and filmmaker Chamila Rodríguez and novelist and Chilean Cultural Attaché Roberto Brodsky will discuss the legacy of Raúl Ruiz and the continued life of his films.
