Double Bill Thursdays

                       ddddddddddd  Double Bill Thursdays-2


Harkening to a bygone era, ‘Double Bill Thursdays’ aims to provide viewers with two perspectives on a single topic for the price of none! Contrasting, complementing, or challenging each other, these otherwise-isolated points of view open up new discussions about Latin American cinema when brought together.

So enjoy the free pairing and join us as we lead into the 17th Annual aluCine Latin Film+Media Arts Festival!

Week 4 Double Bill: June 1, 2017
Uprooted Grassroots
Our final double bill frames territorial disputes in Latin America by examining land rights in light of land use. The plan
to flood vast areas of inland Brazil as well as a significant amount of Costa Rica’s ground in order to build private dams
and hydro-electric plants comes into question when viewers see the agricultural, social, and historical value placed
upon these very spaces by indigenous groups. The films invite us to witness as the significance and yield of these lands
shifts according to its use by private industries and at the hands of communities.

Radio Infrequencies 

Many of the voices heard in this double feature belong to women and indigenous peoples—two groups given distressingly limited air time. The filmmakers focus on groups reclaiming channels typically reserved for preponderant personas; one documents the obscured stories of women who partook in guerrilla movements often associated with males while the other follows the genesis of an indigenous community radio station.

Experience the shift in power as marginalized individuals take back the medium and the message.

Week 2 Double Bill: May 18, 2017
Hidden in Plain Sight
The intrepid travelers featured in this week’s double bill find adventure in their own, ancestral backyards. Indigenous filmmaking collectives from South America unearth a lively portrait of the history concealed in the lush environments which Amazonian and Mapuche cultures have traditionally managed. You are invited to embark on an audiovisual voyage with the younger members of each community who seek a narrative context for the everyday spaces they inhabit.

Week 1 Double Bill: May 11, 2017 
Who Am I? 

In this week’s double bill, we feature films exploring to the age-old question by asking: who do you say I am? The
query takes viewers to remote communities and urban centres as individuals attempt to understand their indigenous
