Cineteca from U. Chile announces a free program to celebrate Cinema Day "Diario y Radio U Chile"


Nostalgia for light by Patricio Guzmán and Let's talk about Cinema by Carmen Brito are the works that will be exhibited at the Central House of the University of Chile as a way to recover the original commemoration of this day in memory of Chilean filmmakers Carmen Bueno and Jorge Muller, detained, tortured and made to disappear through dictatorship in 1974.

Friday, November 23, 2018 2:39 hours.

Patricio Guzmán

On this Saturday, November 24, Cineteca from the University of Chile and the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage will commemorate China's Film Day with the exhibition Nostalgia of light, one of the most important works of director Patricio Guzmán, which establishes links between the work of astronauts in the Atacama desert and the dryness of the soil that preserves the almost intact human remains of those shot during the dictatorship.

On the other hand, on Tuesday, 27, will be the exclusive premiere of the documentary Let's talk about Cinema, by director and archivist Carmen Brito. This paper refers to photography director Héctor Ríos, who, through unpublished testimonies, explains his cinematographic method, accompanied by the intellectual Claudio di Girolamo.

In 2009, Cineteca from the University of Chile planned to recover the initial commemoration of Chilean Cinema Day, which began in the 1980s as a gesture of political memory and resistance.

45 years after the coup, this cinematographic space considers it appropriate to continue the recovery of the history of Chilean cinema, proposing meeting venues with new challenges in which the cinema is the engine that promotes a memory reunion.
