¡Viva Chile Mierda! Screened at Ohio University

On March 16th, 2014 ¡Viva Chile Mierda! screened at the historic Athena theater in Athens, Ohio as part of the Ohio University’s FILM 5010: Symposium course taught by Dr. Louis-George Schwartz. This screening series this year was titled, Series Sea Here and was also open to the public. The film was one of two films on this year’s programme dealing with Chile’s traumatic and tortured history, the other being Nostalgia for the Light (2010) by Patricio Guzman. This makes me very happy indeed given that Patricio Guzman is a hero of mine. I have long admired his work, particularly his film, Chile: Obstinate Memory (1997).

Apparently the screening was well attended and prompted a lively discussion. I am grateful to Dr. Schwartz and to Ohio University for organising this screening.
