Latin American and Caribbean Studies Film Series: Latin American Women Behind the Camera"Postales de Leningrado" ("Postcards from Leningrad")
7:00 – 8:30 pm
During Venezuela’s armed revolutionary struggle of the 1960s, a young guerilla woman gives birth to a daughter. Seen from her child’s point of view, their life of hiding places, fake names and disguises seems like a game. Confidently balancing the drama of revolution with the capacity of children to dream, the film’s colorful universe blurs the line between reality and the madness of war. Written and directed by Mariana Rondón (Venezuela, 2007). In Spanish with English subtitles. 90 minutes. NR
Sponsored by the department of Romance languages, the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, the Georgia Museum of Art, the Portuguese Flagship program at UGA, the Consulate General of Brazil in Atlanta, Hotel Indigo–Athens and the UGA en La Habana Study Abroad Program.
