Oblivion (El Olvido) throws its net across a considerable range of human behavior and bittersweet survival stories, and the result is a wise and beautiful documentary from Dutch filmmaker Heddy Honigmann.
Like all of Heddy Honigmann's films, Oblivion, set in her native Lima, Peru, obliterates any previously held notions we might have had about the subjects she confronts, which, in this case, are intentional forgetfulness and the forgotten of Lima.
Unstinting but lyrical documentary on the costs of poverty in Peru, especially on the children who scramble for coins on the streets of Lima as they ply their trades as gymnasts, jugglers, musicians and shoeshine boys.
