Archeology of memory : Villa Grimaldi( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully crafted, poignant, and timely documentary explores the power of art to heal the trauma of torture. The film follows exiled Chilean musician Quique Cruz from the San Francisco Bay Area to Chile and back as he creates a multimedia installation and musical suite in an effort to heal the emotional wounds inflicted on him by the state-sponsored torture of the Pinochet regime.Utilizing an innovative and compelling blend of documentary, performance, and interview sequences, Archeology of Memory accompanies Cruz as he visits former concentration camp sites and ruins and talks to his mother for the first time in 30 years about his Disappearance and incarceration. To give added depth to his story, he seeks out and receives testimony from other artists who were tortured in Chile. In these intimate conversations writer Nubia Becker, poet Anita Moreira, and painter Guillermo Nuñez relate their cruel experiences as political prisoners and show how their art has helped each to transcend their trauma.The film's musical score is an intricate element of its emotional resonance with viewers. The narrative follows the development of Cruz's musical suite as he remembers his Disappearance, torture, and exile. His memories span the years from Salvador Allende's Chile through the dark era following the U.S.-backed coup led by General Augusto Pinochet and right up to the present. The story climaxes at the infamous former Villa Grimaldi torture site in 2006, with the dedication by current Chilean President Michelle Bachelet of a theater where Cruz performs his suite for an audience of thousands at the place where he was once incarcerated and tortured.This unforgettably powerful and engaging film opens a vital window of understanding on the repercussions of state-sponsored torture and disappearance of political prisoners. Many victims of torture want only to forget the past in order to live in the present. Because of this need to forget, their stories are often never disclosed, and the process of healing for them, their families, and their communities may be delayed for decades or even generations.Archeology of Memory: Villa Grimaldi will help bring transparency to this timely topic and provide a riveting context for thought, analysis, and discussion in a wide variety of courses in Latin and South American studies, human rights, Third-World studies, cultural anthropology, and the arts and music. The film is a co-production of Interfaze Educational Productions and the Independent Television Services (ITVS), in association with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB), with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). It is a film by Quique Cruz and Marilyn Mulford. It is in English and Spanish with English subtitles and English closed-captions. The DVD was fully authored by the producers

Chicano Park( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Each year, residents of San Diego's Barrio Logan celebrate the events of April 22, 1970 when members of La Raza and other groups took over land slated for redevelopment and established Chicano Park. This documentary meshes archival footage, photographs and contemporary interviews to trace the history of Barrio Logan and its struggles to reclaim a part of "Aztlan," the mythical Aztec kingdom of the Southwest that has come to symbolize the powerful renewal of Chicano pride. Once the second largest Chicano community on the west coast, Barrio Logan was home to Mexican immigrants, who in the 1920's, filtered over the porous border to labor as longshoreman and cannery workers. During the Depression, the neighborhood was fragmented when Mexican-American residents were deported under government decree to protect the jobs of Anglos. With the outbreak of World War II, Chicanos were again recruited, this time to labor in the aircraft and naval industries and the community blossomed again. Barrio Logan was rezoned for industrial expansion in the 1950's; the Coronado Bridge was constructed and inhabitants displaced. In the 1960's, residents, following the model of the Civil Rights Movement, initiated a long but ultimately successful crusade to preserve a parcel of land under the freeway for a park. Among the most ardent activists were artists who began covering the huge stanchions of Coronado Bridge with colorful murals depicting Aztec and Mayan myth and honoring Chicano heroes. In recent years, the inhabitants of Barrio Logan have weathered additional rounds of urban redevelopment but in 1987, won the right to expand Chicano Park to the bay

Dieser Film handelt von der dramatischen Geschichte des Mississippi Voter Registration Project (1960-1964) und stellt den politischen und institutionellen Rassismus im Bundesstaat Mississipi dar, dem die Demokraten in den 60er Jahren stillschweigend Vorschub leisteten. Erzählt wird die Geschichte einer Gruppe von außergewöhnlichen Menschen, die die Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) gründeten und politische Institutionen herausforderten, indem sie Afroamerikaner auf die Wählerlisten setzten. Eine eindrucksvolle Beschreibung dieses mutigen Kampfes um Gleichberechtigung, der ein Umdenken einleitete und den politischen Horizont Amerikas für immer veränderte. Der Film wurde 1994 auf dem Festival von Sundance mit dem Preis der Jury für den besten Dokumentarfilm ausgezeichnet
