¡Viva!:One Hour Intro: Latin America at the Crossroads?

Francisco Dominguez, Senior Lecturer in Spanish at the University of Middlesex, reflects on the widening socio-political gap between the US and Latin America. Taking into account Andrés Wood’s Chilean film Machuca, this talk will ask if we are witnessing the dawn of a new era across Latin America whose symbolism has been encapsulated in the indictment of former US-sponsored Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet. Tickets: £2.50 full / £2.00 concs.For full programme details see www.vivafilmfestival.com
