Los Rubios (The Blonds)
In 1977, when she was four years old, Albertina Carri's parents vanished without a trace, victims of Argentina's brutal military junta. In The Blonds, (or Los Rubios, her parents' nickname) the young Argentinian filmmaker travels with her crew across Buenos Aires to unravel the mystery of her parents' life, disappearance and death. Attacking the shifting projections of memory from many fronts, Carri enlists an actor, her parents' comrades, fading photographs and happy Playmobil* dolls to investigate complicated questions of identity and responsibility.

Carla Manzoni was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is currently a PhD candidate (A.B.D since April, 27. 2012) at the Spanish and Portuguese Department, University of Minnesota. She holds a MA in Hispanic and Lusophonic Literatures and Cultures at the same university and previous studies in her native Argentina in Public Relations (undergraduate) and Communication Management (post-graduate).

Carla has worked in political communication, diverse media -such as TV, radio and film- and cultural non-for-profits. She is currently working on her dissertation as wells as on her conservation project which attempts to create an archive of unedited Latin American independent videoart and experimental audiovisual.
