Chicas Nuevas 24 Horas (New Girls 24-7)

In her most recent film, Chicas Nuevas 24 horas (New Girls 24-7: http://www.proyectochicasnuevas24horas.com) Lozano illustrates another form of violence against women, that of enslavement and trafficking of young Latin American women to prostitution rings in Europe (Spain).  Lozano's documentary has received international recognition, been awarded several prizes (Avanzadoras de Oxfam Intermon, Premio del Festival de Cine de Málaga, Cruz al Mérito de la Policía Nacional) and perhaps most significantly, the filmmaker has travelled across Latin America to educate young women about the workings of these illegal rings and to undermine the false promise of prosperity pledged to women in dire economic situations.

Celebrating the New Wave of Ibero-American Cinema

Starting January 13, 2016, Dartmouth will host an Ibero-American film festival on six consecutive Wednesday nights.  Thanks to the generosity of the Spanish & Portuguese, Film and Media Studies and Environmental Studies departments, the festival will bring new Spanish and Portuguese-language feature films and documentaries to campus, complementing a diversity of curricular activities.  Documentaries about the Amazon, the US/Mexico border, and the ETA conflict in Spain, in addition to feature films from Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela, will draw students from Spanish & Portuguese, Film & Media Studies, Latin American, Latino/a & Caribbean Studies, Women's & Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, and Earth Sciences.  The festival will also be widely advertised in order to attract attendees from outside of the Dartmouth community.  This festival was also made possible with the support of Pragda, SPAIN arts & culture and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain.

Nicaragua trip with Dartmouth Students

A group of 19 Dartmouth undergraduate students, three medical professionals, and two Geisel medical students recently traveled to the northern Atlantic autonomous region (RAAN) of Nicaragua and spent two weeks on a experiential learning international service trip working as volunteers in a medical clinic and on a construction team. Participants in the program engaged in thoughtful reflection, learned many aspects about Nicaraguan culture and history from the communities in Nicaragua, and experienced deep personal growth, as well as practiced their Spanish with their Nicaraguan hosts and the patients, who came to the medical clinic. For more information about the Nicaragua trip, please contact the Dartmouth Center for Service or Prof. Douglas Moody.

"Jauja" Movie Screening Jan 15th

FRIDAY JANUARY 15, 7PM

LOEW AUDITORIUM, BLACK FAMILY VISUAL ARTS CENTER

Followed by an in-depth Q&A post screening with Director Lisandro Alonso

Lisandro Alonso is a key figure of the New Argentine Cinema, a loosely connected new generation of filmmakers that has emerged since the late 1990s. The most radical, controversial, and arguably original representative of this new wave, Alonso is the director of La libertad/Freedom (2001), Los muertos/The Dead (2004), Fantasma (2006), Liverpool (2008) and, most recently, Jauja (2014).

With Jauja, the film we plan to screen at Dartmouth, Alonso has turned towards a somewhat traditional narrative cinema. Co-written with the poet Fabían Casas, photographed by Finnish cinematographer Timo Salminen, and starring Viggo Mortensen, the film is a colonial adventure that focuses on the period of the "conquest of the desert" during the late 1870s. A quasi-Western, it has been compared John Ford's The Searchers but also Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness. Alonso's film has garnered wide-spread acclaim at international film festivals, particularly Cannes, where most of his films were premiered.
