Antarctica, Looking for Gabriela is a 52 minute documentary, filmed in Antarctica. It is directed by the video artist Cecilia Conti, as a tribute to her sister, Gabriela Conti (1974-2010), the famous French-Argentine writer and explorer.
Discovering, in September 2013, her true identity (she is a former stolen baby of the Argentinian dictatorship), Cecilia follows the traces of her sister, whom she never met, with the support of the Argentinian Government and the ‘International Organization for Antarctica’ in February 2014.
This fictional documentary, directed by an imaginary character in homage to an imaginary character, is one of the works of the Antarctica exhibition.
