Synopsis

Somos memoria. Sin recuerdos no seríamos nada. Quien recuerda vive, tiene un hogar, un presente, humanidad. Recordar es un ejercicio de lo más sano, aunque a veces pueda resultar hiriente. «Gogoan dut» es, precisamente, un ejercicio de memoria, personal, íntimo, que no oculta nada. A la manera de Joe Brainard o Georges Perec, el escritor conforma su biografía a través de pasajes, fragmentos, golpes directos, incómodos en ocasiones, emotivos en otras, jocosos no pocas veces. Y, al final, recuerdo a recuerdo, lo que era un ejercicio personal se convierte en el retrato de una época, de una geografía, de toda una generación.

We are memory. Without memories we would be nothing. Whoever remembers lives, has a home and a present, is a human. Remembering is among the healthiest exercises ever, though it might hurt at times. “Gogoan dut” is, indeed, an exercise of memory, personal, intimate, not hiding anything. In the Joe Brainard’s or Georges Perec manner, the writer shapes his biography through passages, fragments, direct hits, uncomfortable at times, emotional at others, often hilarious. And, in the end, souvenir after souvenir, what was a personal exercise becomes the portrait of an era, of a geography, of a whole generation.
