To end Latin America Cinema we watched a powerful, poetic and beautiful documentary http://www.theguardian.com/film/2012/jul/12/nostalgia-for-the-light-review
I would recommend a watch!
At Brunel today we watched Chile, Obstinate Memory … very moving documentary. Now to watch the Battle of Chile!
Learning about Latin America has been empowering over the last few weeks, the revolutions, the people they were such passionate times.

Only a few weeks till the first term is over - will post my reflections of the course so far over the holidays.
Spent the morning watching his films - has been an intense experience! He converted his anger into energy, he was able to make powerful statements with very limited resources!
My style is the style of hatred for imperialism - his films were born of rage!
"Give me two photographs, a moviola and some music and I’ll make you a film."
