Making Sense of the Lack of Sense: Filming in Post-War Guatemala
Dr. Valeria Grinberg Pla will discuss how words like democracy, freedom and justice cease to have meaning in post-war societies because of the suspension of the social, political and cultural structures that define them. She asserts that the great challenge of post-war cinema and literature is finding ways to indicate this void and, at the same time, restore the significant power of language and, with this, recreate community. Grinberg Pla explores this theory through her discussion of post-war Guatemalan feature films Gasolina/Gasoline (2008), Las marimbas del infierno/The Marimbas of Hell (2010) and Polvo/Dust (2012), directed by Julio Hernández Cordón.
A reception will follow her talk in the theater lobby.
