Voyage en oxyplatine / Trip on Oxyplatine
Horizontes Latinos Specials

On March 7, 2001, Jorge Amat receives a liver transplant at the Paul Brousse Hospital in Villejuif. When tests for the operation show that he has bone lymphoma, he is given chemotherapy until April 2002. Having no strength to either write or think, he obliges himself during this time to confess to a camera, thus creating a filmed diary. But there's no narcissism in his action; Amat's intention is to show how his illness disfigures the body and what's left of the human being when this body betrays you, leaving only pain. This is a journey in the company of drugs with strange names like ?oxyplatine?, while the doctors struggle to beat the cancerous cells.
Graduated in film and art from the Université de Paris VIII. Has directed TV documentaries (La voix de Jean Moulin, Le trésor de Yamashita, L'espoir pour mémoire, Ciao bella ciao, L'oeil du consul) in addition to writing screenplays for documentaries and fiction films. He has also directed two feature films, Clin d'oeil (1984) and Les paradoxes de Buñuel (1997), both screened at San Sebastian Festival.
