Lecturers from the Iberian and Latin American Studies department of the University of Liverpool present a series of films & talks from the wide Luso-Hispanic world that address historical and contemporary issues.
How much can a mug shot reveal about a political system? How much can a picture taken over 40 years ago say about today? Award-winning director Susana Sousa Dias uses photos of political prisoners during the Portuguese dictatorship (1926-1974) to expose the mechanisms used by that regime to perpetuate itself. Sublime and horrific in equal measure, this innovative and original film makes for an intense and intimate viewing experience.
Lecturers from the University of Liverpool will lead a post film talk/debate after the film.
