Gepe y Margot Loyola: Folclor Imaginario

Director Nino Aguilera
Chile / 90 min. / 2019 / Spanish


The process of creating Imaginary Folklore, the album with which pop singer Gepe honoured the legacy and ancient songs recovered by Margot Loyola, one of the greatest performers and researchers of Chilean folklore.

 

Imaginary Folklore was one of the most applauded Chilean albums of 2018 and this documentary puts before the camera the reasons, searches and associations that led pop singer Gepe to such a brilliant crossroads with tradition. The work of the greatest researchers of Chilean folklore directed Gepe from the beginning of his career, but meeting Margot Loyola personally in 2013 prompted him to translate that respectful admiration into this particular project. For the singer-songwriter, Margot Loyola forms with Violeta Parra and Gabriela Pizarro an essential triumvirate of the country's musical tradition. The documentary earned the prize for the Best National Documentary of In-Edit Chile 2019, thanks to the spontaneity and care with which it captures the rescue, reinterpretation and diffusion of a repertoire that is little known by the younger generations and that transits through genres including cueca, habanera and bolero. Gepe and his band speak in the studio, along with close collaborators like María Esther Zamora, Cristián Heyne, Gianluca and Osvaldo Cádiz. The late Margot Loyola shines, showing through archive images her conviction that folklore is a universal and essentially dynamic expression, in keeping with time.
