Cinema, Solidarity, and Resistance: A Talk with Dr. Jose M. Palacios

Wednesday, April 21st 7PM on Zoom

This presentation looks at different moments of cinematic encounter marked by solidarity: Latin American and Black cinemas in the 1960s, European cinemas and Latin American refugees in the 1970s and 1980s, and contemporary strategies of protest and resistance around the globe. In bringing these moments together I want to ask: What happens to our understanding of world cinema if we center our attention on a geography of solidarity? What does our film history look like if we put this geography into motion, if we study its various transits across continents and decades?
