Uso Justo

USA (MIFF 2005, experimental)

Director: Coleman Miller

An experimental filmmaker comes to the town of Uso Justo, generating mixed feelings in the locals. Using footage from an obscure 1950s' melodrama, Miller remakes the original film with new subtitles to weave a humorous and layered 'narrative' that celebrates the genre.
