AGAINST THE GRAIN

Fri., April. 11

(2007) color, 64 mins., documentary in Spanish,
English, Japanese and Quechua. For every artist,
the need to create and be heard is as basic
as food and shelter. But what happens when
you live in a country where the state clamps
down on free thinkers, forcing artists to
censure themselves?


Meet the director Ann Kaneko for a Q&A session
after the viewing.

Technocultural Studies, Art History, Art Studio
and Asian American Studies.

IN THE PIT
(EN EL HOYO)

Fri., April 25, 7pm


Juan Carlos Rulfo (dir.) According to Mexican
legend, the devil demands one soul be
offered up for every bridge built, as a
guarantee for the structure’s durability.
In Juan Carlos Rulfo’s internationally-praised
documentary, this age-old adage takes on
mammoth proportions.

COCALERO

Fri., May 2, 7pm


A documentary film focused
on coca farmers in Bolivia.

Filmmaker Alejandro Landes writes, directs
and produces this award-winning documentary.
This controversial documentary is centered on
the union formed by Bolivian farmers in response
to their government's effort (which was urged
by the U.S.) to eradicate coca crops, and the man
who would come to represent them, Evo Morales,
current president of Bolivia.

BEAUTIFUL ME(S)

Fri, May 23, 7pm

Everyday people in Harlem and a New England
college town show how differently we see Cuba.

This is a true story of a diverse group of
underdog students who travel from the ivy league
to the rebel state of Cuba. The group discovers the
close affinity Cuban people feel with Africans and
African Americans and their commitment to ending
racial injustice.  The Cubans they encounter are
driven more by their principles of unity and equality
than by any individual leader.

Meet  the director for a Q&A session
after the viewing.

Mission

The Hemispheric Institute on the Americas is an interdisciplinary group bringing together faculty and graduate students that focus on the study of transnational processes in the American Hemisphere.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
