Eine Veranstaltung des Lateinamerika-Instituts
In her films, the celebrated Argentinian film director Lucrecia Martel explores universes characterized by dense and often difficult interactions: gender oppression, congested kinship, silent conflicts. Her most recent film, "Zama", based on a novel published in 1956 by Antonio di Benedetto, explores multicultural interrelations in colonial Argentina several centuries before the word multiculturalism was coined. The 2017 film has already received awards in various countries, it displays the interactions of Spaniards and Argentinians, indigenous, enslaved and free persons, as well as men and women from different social strata, highlighting the abject normality of colonial contact.
Lucrecia Martel will present and discuss these colonial dystopias with Julia Roth, expert on gender and postcolonial studies; Claudia von Alemann, film director and film scholar; and Peter Schulze, film and literary.
The event will be held in Spanish without translation.
Free entry, no registration necessary.
