Made in LA

Screening: 156 Straub Hall Jan 13 @ 6pm

Made in L.A. is an Emmy award-winning feature documentary that follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. In intimate verite style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice.

The Silence of Others

Screening: 156 Straub Jan 14 @ 6 pm

The Silence of Others reveals the epic struggle of victims of Spain’s 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, who continue to seek justice to this day. Filmed over six years, the film follows victims and survivors as they organize the groundbreaking “Argentine Lawsuit” and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, in a country still divided four decades into democracy.

Cine-Lit 9—A conference on Hispanic Cinema and Literature

March 8, 2019toMarch 11, 2019

Locations: UO PDX and PSU

See also: https://around.uoregon.edu/content/women-hispanic-film-and-literature-focus-pdx-gathering

Founded in 1990, Cine-Lit is the continuing, cooperative organization between the University of Oregon, Portland State University, and Oregon State University that, in conjunction with the Portland International Film Festival, organizes an international symposium on Hispanic film and literature every 3-4 years. The conference is held at the UO PDX and PSU.

This 9thedition highlights the theme of WOMEN (women filmmakers, representations of women and genders and so on).

For the UO Eugene,this is a signature event for faculty and students working in Hispanic cultures across disciplines in the Humanities, as the occasion showcases UO faculty and students who come from Eugene to participate in conference sessions, round tables, filmmaker lectures and film screenings at the University of Oregon’s Portland campus. In past conferences, faculty and graduate students from Romance Languages, Cinema, Women and Gender Studies, Journalism, History and Latin American Studies have participated in the conference and film festival.

New for 2019 is a campaign to create two conference sessions dedicated to the presentation of Eugene undergraduate research on Hispanic cinema and culture.

The second initiative new for 2019 is that peer-reviewed articles based on conference papers from 2015 (and, later for 2019) will be published in a special issue of the new UO-based academic journal Peripherica http://journals.oregondigital.org/index.php/peripherica/index.

Activities

  • Over three days, professors, graduate and undergraduate students share their research on the relationship between cinema and literature. They also participate in workshops, attend roundtable discussions by the writers and cineastes invited by the symposium, and listen to the keynotes. All meetings are free and open to the public.
  • Each afternoon and evening speakers and audiences have to opportunity to watch the latest Hispanic films featured at the Portland International Film Festival in connection to the themes discussed at the conference.
  • One highlight is the presence of the Hispanic directors invited by Cine-Lit and whose films are featured by the Festival. Cine-Lit participants and our university students interact with these invited artists.
