Pre-Screening Introduction / Ilusiones ópticas

Intro The screening on Fri 11 March will be introduced by Andy Willis, Reader in Film Studies at the University of Salford.


This warm, funny and charming film shows that lives can change enormously due to both large and small events. As the concerns and anxieties of the contemporary world impact on a loosely connected, offbeat group of characters in the Chilean city of Valdivia the way they see the world is forced to change, revealing its humanity, cruelty and absurdity.
