Ugo Ulive (1933-2018)
Among the political cinema films of the sixties, Basta (1969), made by Ugo Ulive for the Film Department of the University of Los Andes, stands out above all. It is a non-fiction film that, through the analogy with an autopsy, tries to show the hidden reality under a superficial progress, including the antithesis embodied in the guerrillas. The plans made in the morgue approximate this film to the classic The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes by Stan Brakhage, which is a later film (1971), with the exception that Ulive's was shot in black and white, and the sequence in which the camera aggressively pursues a patient in a psychiatric hospital continues to be an anthology.
Enough is an eminently experimental film. In it there are exposed, by means of violent symbols (and using freely the Artaudian concept of "cruelty"), some consequences of the present social organization in Latin America: the alienation of the human being marginated and turned into a "thing", and the constant presence of the imperialism seen as a violation.
