World Cinema and Cosmopolitics Research Group: Against the National Project: Memory and Mobility in Contemporary Colombian Cinema

9th March 2018, 13:00 to 15:30, Russkiy Mir Centre, A29, Elvet Riverside I, Durham University

Archivist, film scholar and curator Juana Suárez, Director of the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program at New York University (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts, presents a programme of four recent short films by Colombian filmmakers living abroad. Works by Juan Soto, Laura Huertas Millán, Camilo Restrepo and Gonzalo Escobar unsettle established narratives of national cinema through counter-hegemonic perspectives. Experimental uses of archives, intersections with video art and explorations of texture and place characterise this radical and developing body of work.
