Harley Queen Film Screening and Q and A with Directors
Mon, Oct 30, 2023, 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Communications Building Room 150 (Theater C)

Join us for a special screening of "Harley Queen" (2019, Chile), a film by José Luis Sepúlveda and Carolina Adriazola, followed by Q&A with the directors.  Presented by Latin American and Latino Studies and Languages and Applied Linguistics, in collaboration with Film and Digital Media.  

Description: It is a documentary that portrays the double life of a woman who strives to find her identity through a supervillain, a dancer and a mother in Bajos de Mena, which is known as "Chile's biggest ghetto" in Puente Alto, Santiago.  It's a film about aspirations, tensions, contradictions, and about the limits of film itself to reflect lives who are forced to navigate a system that thrives through marginalization and abandonment.  It's a lens through which to think about Chile today, politically, socially, and in relationship to a global landscape of pop references and -distant- opportunities.  

This event is made in collaboration with Hector Salgado, from Tunnel Productions.
