City of Pirates1983
City of Pirates (French: La ville des pirates) is a 1983 surrealist French fantasy film directed by Chilean filmmaker Raúl Ruiz. Made during Ruiz's most prolific period of filmmaking in exile and shortly after his first return to Chile since the 1973 military coup, the film is considered one of his best works and exemplifies several recurring themes and motifs of the director's style, including neo-Baroque narrative and cinematography, depth of field, the ocean and piracy, childhood, mythology, navigation, dreams, and schizophrenia.
City of Pirates was shot on Baleal Island with a primarily French cast in a period of only three weeks. Ruiz used a process of automatic writing to write his screenplay during the shoot. Academic Michael Goddard notes that "Ruiz would write the script each day immediately after the siesta; hence, in effect, dream the script rather than writing it." As a result, the film is heavily influenced by conceptions of dreams and their relationship to storytelling and the visual.
