Awka Liwen - Rebellion at Dawn

user
Director: Mariano Aiello and Kristina Hille.
Long Synopsis Awka Liwen is the story of the struggle for wealth distribution in Argentina since the genocide of native peoples and the theft of their ancestral territories. For this is was created a culture of racism against the Indian and the gaucho who still lives in society. In 2008, the same sectors as they appropriated indigenous lands attempted a coup to keep their class privileges. There are two competing models of country that the film deconstructs from the following core concepts: Inequality in the distribution of resources. A very small group of people in the country seized huge tracts of its territory killing, enslaving, or expelling their natural owners. Then, the same factional group opposed in the past and present to pay taxes. The history repeats itself cyclically. Industrialization versus commodity-exporting economy. Since the landlord class is consolidated in the country and integrating into the global economy (under the United Kingdom until World War II), that group support a "free trade” policies. The great land owners believes that allowing free entry of products manufactured in the UK - without trying to develop a local industry - is going to give them the possibility of exporting primary products of their great farms with prices more profitable. This class always opposed and oppose today to the country's industrialization. Structural racism. Argentina is defined as a country of European immigrants. But when you look in the mirror is mestizo. The killing of Indigenous Peoples didn’t exterminate complete but maintein the status quo of the colonial over-exploitation. Injustice. Over 500 years have passed of the dispossession of their lands and now, again, are expelled en masse from the land they have left (usually the worst). Globalization. The boundaries of capitalism more primitive and aggressive spread, and go where they previously could not had interest in arrive A case study of Leleque in the huge farm of Benetton. One People, One Culture. Aboriginal peoples are holders of an ancient culture that is partly obscured, if not denigrated by the dominant culture (European Judeo-Christian).

Get on the Bus

user
by Kathleen Burke In the world of film, like in any of the arts, there’s a bus; a mental montage that carries you to the fulfillment of your dreams. You are part of the ‘scene’, a passenger on the ‘film’ bus. But, unlike these other slobs you travel with, you believe firmly that your ride will be short and sweet. The work you have slaved over will be recognized as the biggest breakthrough in decades, acclaimed at long-last as a welcome flair of inventive and genius...

Flights

Director: Robert M. Herzog.
Based on an almost true but entirely surreal experience. In 1968, a college senior tries to finish his Harvard Law School Application, which would keep him from being draft bait, likely to fight in the Vietnam War. Fong and his roommates start making enormous paper airplanes, get stoned, set the planes on fire and launch them from a precarious roof. At the end of an intense, frenzied evening, a final decision propels Fong into an uncertain, potentially lethal future. Flights depicts the intense pressures of an era when ordinary rites of passage could have life and death consequences. It is a timely exploration of the impact of America at war, amidst a conflict between citizenship and morality.
