Argentine Film Wed 11/20

The final installment of the Latin American and Spanish language film showings features a film from Argentina this Wednesday 11/20!

MOVIE: Clandestine Childhood (2013) by Benjamín Ávila
COUNTRY: Argentina
FEATURED TOPIC: Mental Health + Political Violence
WHEN: November 20th at 7 pm
WHERE: Barnes Electronic Classroom / Hewes Library
TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NKG104RmmUSYNOPSIS:
After years of exile, twelve-year-old Juan and his family come back to Argentina under fake identities. Juan’s parents and his uncle Beto are members of the Montoneros Organization, which is fighting against the Military Junta that rules the country. Because of their political activities, they are tracked down relentlessly, and the threat of capture and even death is constant. However, Juan’s daily life is also full of warmth and humor, and he quickly integrates into his new environment. His friends at school and the girl he has a gigantic crush on, Maria, know him as Ernesto-a name he must not forget since his family’s survival is at stake. Juan accepts this and follows all of his parents’ rules until one day he is told that they need to move again immediately, and leave his friends and Maria behind without an explanation.




Free an open to all.
