THIS EVENT IS FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS ONLY. SUITABLE FOR THOSE STUDYING AS AND A-LEVEL SPANISH.
This event, transferred from BFI Southbank in London, is intended for students and teachers only and has been structured in response to the current A-level specifications.
This study day, conducted mostly in Spanish, will focus on contemporary films that explore the dictatorships of Franco and Pinochet and the common themes of representation of political repression, the ‘disappeared’, memory wars, and the struggle of victims who are still calling for justice. Clips from films such as Pedro Larraín’s No (2012), Patricio Guzmán’s Nostalgia for the Light (2010) and Guillermo del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone (2001) will form part of the morning’s presentation.
In the afternoon, there will be an introduced screening of the award-winning and Oscar-nominated documentary The Silence of Others (2018). Subject to their availability, either Almudena Carracedo or Robert Baha, the film’s producers and directors, will join the students for a video call Q&A.
The day will be led by Dr. Sarah Wright, Senior Lecturer, department of Hispanic Studies, Royal Holloway, University of London and Dr. Lidia Merás, Visiting Lecturer and Spanish Tutor, Royal Holloway, University of London
