Episode Details

Original tape date: November 18, 2010.

En este episodio nos centramos en el cine. En particular, hablaremos del cortometraje, formato que ha jugado un papel crucial en el desarrollo y éxito actual de la cinematografía de America Latina.

El primer corto se titula “Olas”, de la realizadora colombiana Camila Jiménez, donde se presenta un sector de la sociedad que no es abordado con frecuencia: la niñez afro-colombiana.

La segunda historia es “Hispaniola”, del director y productor Freddy Vargas, la cual aborda un tema tabú en la República Dominicana: el racismo.

Estas dos cintas nos llevan a analizar con agudeza los conflictos y contradicciones de las sociedades en las que se desarrollan sus historias.

Today, we'll focus on the film industry, more precisely on short films, a format that has played a key role in the development and current success of Latin American filmmaking.

The first film is Waves, by Colombian director Camila Jiménez, which talks about a part of society that is not usually portrayed, Afro-Colombian children.

The other film is Hispaniola, by director and producer Freddy Vargas, which deals with a taboo subject in the Dominican Republic: racism.

Both films lead us to a thorough analysis of the conflicts and contradictions of the societies in which they're set.
