Where: Athena Cinema, South Court Street, Athens, OH, United States
When: Sunday, Mar 16 7:00 PM
Series Sea Here is Sunday night screening of films that engage the eyes and ears. The films in the series are mostly documentaries that link audiences to the sensuality and politics in the sprit of cinema’s ability to explore the world. Three of the films bring the sea here to Athens (THE FORGOTTEN SPACE, AT SEA, and SHIP OF THESUS). Two filmmakers, Jennifer Reeder and Sarah Kanouse will visit us here, show us their work and discuss it with us. In addition there will be 2 films on Chile one the Sunday before spring break. Louis-Georges Schwartz of the Ohio University Film Division will briefly introduce each film and facilitate a discussion following.
March 16th: Viva Chile Mierda
Chile, 1974. Under the cloak of darkness Pinochet’s military intelligence service raid the home of the filmmaker’s aunt Gaby. She, together with her husband and brother, were blindfolded and taken to a secret military prison to be interrogated. For three weeks they were tortured and terrorized. No one knew where they were. Their children were kept under armed guard. Were it not for the help given to them by one young prison guard, they would not have coped. That guard was Andres ‘Papudo’ Valenzuela, who several years later would be the first military intelligence officer to admit to the crimes committed by the dictatorship. Through intimate interviews, illustrations, animations and first person voice over, this film traces the lives of both prisoners and guard in order to reflect on the enduring effects of this traumatic history. Their stories shine light on larger issues of exile, national identity, truth and reconciliation.
Screening at 7:00 p.m. Free Admission.
