14.00: Focus: Chile
The death of former dictator Augusto Pinochet in 2006 marked the end of one of the darkest chapters in the nation´s history. And for the last few years Chilean film has had a major revival.
A new generation of filmmakers have emerged with innovative visions. But there are also issues: the cinemas are dominated by films from the US, and the Chilean films have difficulties in being distributed.
The seminar will be held in English.
Participants: Dominga Sotomayor, director Thursday Till Sunday (p.104), Esteban Larraín, director The Passion of Michelangelo (p.106), and Francois Margolin, producer The Night Across The Street (p.104) Moderator: Andreas Jacobson, Ph.D. Film Studies, senior lecturer, intercultural studies, Karlstad University.
