riverrun Global Film Series: Mexican Cinema and Culture Bending Borders

Friday, October 12, 2018, 4–5:30 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Devil’s Freedom (La Libertad Del Diablo), Ernesto Gonzales, 2017 (1 hr 15 mins)

In some of the world's most dangerous cities life is not worth much. Looking into the eyes of the protagonists of violence, victims as well as executioners, this documentary helps us understand how fear inserts itself into subconscious of Mexican society. Told through the words of those who have suffered violence along with those who inflict it, this film presents a challenging, startling, and ultimately effective portrayal of its impossibly difficult subject: violence.

Speaker: Ignacio Sánchez Prado, Washington University in St. Louis
