The Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies and the Library invite the Externadista community to enjoy, on Thursday, February 7, 2019, the Canadian film "Ararat."
In the first half of 2019, the Externadista Cinema Club presents a film cycle addressing the ravages or dire consequences left by invasions, civil wars, dictatorships, and extremist nationalisms. The program, consisting of 15 major international feature films, will refer, in chronological order, to the most significant world events.
To analyze these productions, in their artistic and historical context, film critic and cinema professor, Mauricio Laurens, introduces the films and provides discussion parameters. The Club meets on Thursdays, at 2:00 pm, at the Library, Room 1.
Our next session, Thursday, February 7, 2019, features the film “Ararat,” directed by Atom Egoyan. The drama, based on the massacre in the province of Van (Turkey), narrates stories of different characters, including a man who is detained in a customs control point, leading to the discovery of some conflicting episodes of his life.
