Rafa Russo’s ‘The Year of Fury’ Deftly Interweaves Latin American Politics to the Forefront

               “The Year of Fury,’ Rafa Russo’s film set in Uruguay during the early 1970s, maintains its cool sensibilities by its knowing and interesting set of characters. It rolls and flows fluidly by Russo’s lyrical direction – always mindful that the heart of the story rests in the importance of how creative writers must maintain their poise in the face of a pending dictatorship. The motion picture will surely be embra...

Cine Migratorio

Cine Migratorio is a migration-themed film festival that will take place May 10-13, 2012 in Santander, Spain. The Festival aims to present a program of artistically accomplished, thematically challenging and stimulating films about migration to students, migrants, Santander residents, and anyone who wishes to join us for this weekend-long event. We hope these films will incite reflection and discussion about migration, but also about the power of film to capture mobility in a modern age. We welcome all film genres (feature, short, documentary, experimental, animation) and do not endorse any one political stance on migration issues. Cine Migratorio endeavors to screen films that explore a wide range of migration-related themes and issues, from the way in which economic and social forces that drive migration cross as many borders as migrants themselves, to personal migration stories, to films less directly concerned with migration but still resonant with its effects and contexts. In addition to screenings, Cine Migratorio will feature lectures, workshops, live music, and other events. Leading up to the festival, Cine Migratorio will host an array of programs in local high schools and local centers. Cine Migratorio will take place May 10-13th in Santander, Spain, in the Paraninfo at the Las Llamas campus of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP).

AWKA LIWEN – REBELLION AT DAWN

user
Director: Mariano Aiello and Kristina Hille.
Awka Liwen is the story of the massacres against Native Peoples in Argentina (nineteenth century) for the theft of their lands and the current discrimination against them and their descendants. Those who funded the genocide against Indigenous Peoples they always opposed to paying higher taxes and reacted with extreme violence when they felt threatened in their class interests: deaths of rural workers during the strikes of 1921 in Patagonia and extermination of 30000 Argentines during the dictatorship. The racism against the native argentine was not accidental: it was the alibi to justify the robbery of lands to Indian and the Gaucho by the descendants of Europeans. The current rebellion of agribusiness leaders seeking "European" price and costs "Argentinian" to food embodies a profound contempt for the majority. The division of the Argentines, the eternal "trench" can be closed. A government attempt to do so through a more equitable redistribution of wealth. But again the landowners are opposed to losing their class privileges. They want a coup. The people said, NOT MORE!
