16mm | 80 minutes. | Argentina, 1999

Harto The Borges departs from the premise of a television program produced to celebrate on the air Jorge Luis Borge's 80th birthday. The show serves Montes-Bradley to amplify the dialogue with others, including those who, like Mick Jagger, Héctor Babenco, Humberto Ecco, and Bernardo Bertolucci, delved into Borges's imagination to create their own masterpieces.

Particularly relevant are here the interventions of Franco Lucentini and Martin Caparrós. The result is highly entertaining and thought-provoking, leaving the audience with a much deeper understanding of Jorge Luis Borges and the literature.
