The Poetics of Rediscovery: New Paths in Latin American Documentary
Film screenings and Q&A with documentaries: Julio Ramos (Puerto Rico) and Alex Schlenker (Ecuador)
Date: Friday, April 11, 2014
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; 4:00 p.m. Roundtable discussion with University of Pittsburgh faculty from several departments
Location: Frick Fine Arts Auditorium
Coordinated by: Amigos del Cine
The symposium will be a one-day event with a morning and an afternoon screening, each preceded by an introduction by the filmmakers and followed by both a question-and-answer session and a final round table, where University of Pittsburgh faculty from several departments will contribute their insights on the films. We will present two works by scholar and filmmaker Julio Ramos: the first on Afro-Cuban filmmaker and poet Guillén Landrián, the less-well-known nephew of Cuba's national poet Nicolás Guillén, and the second an uncovering of the stories behind the murals Diego Rivera painted in the city of Detroit. The latter, titled Detroit's Rivera, highlights the archival work required for the making documentaries. Rounding out the program will be Chigualeros, by director Alex Schlenker, the tale of the career of an Ecuadoran band and their struggles for sending their music out into the world beyond their community's adoring fans.
