The Invisible Eye, Diego Lerman, 2010
at the Palm Springs Art Museum‘s Annenberg Theater
101 Museum Drive Palm Springs, CA
A lonely and deeply repressed assistant teacher at an elite Buenos Aires private school accepts unquestioningly the school’s rigid code of conduct and proud identification with the nation state. But her head professor’s words about the “cancer of subversion” and need for total surveillance soon feed an unhealthy obsession with one of her students, leading to an ensuing spiral of degradation and breakdown in discipline that parallels a popular rebellion beyond the school’s ivy-covered walls in Argentina’s 1980’s uprising.
