Film Screening: "Machuca", by Andrés Wood

The Comparative Literature Graduate Association presents Andrés Wood's Machuca (Chile 2004)

Andrés Wood's "Machuca" presents a powerful coming-of-age story inspired by the childhood memories of Andrés Wood. Set in Chile at the time of the military coup that overthrew Chile’s popularly elected democratic socialist president, Salvador Allende, and imposed Augusto Pinochet’s long-lasting dictatorship, the movie centers on social scission, traumatic memory, and friendship. The film stars Matías Quer, Ariel Mateluna and Aline Küppenheim. One hour and twenty minutes. In Spanish with English subtitles. Comparative Literature Graduate Students will lead a discussion after the movie.
