DRCLAS Film Series
During the 2020-2021 academic year the DRCLAS Film Series The Present of Yesterday will be hosted online and will feature a presentation by the student in charge of the session, followed by a conversation with the director of the film and Q&A with the public. The movies will be offered for free through streaming one day before the event to pre-registered participants.
“The movie theater is dark, a light from the past projects onto a screen: someone is looking for something. The Present of Yesterday fosters a dialogue between contemporary aesthetics of documentary and fiction. Contemporary filmmakers seek to understand the present through narratives made of collective histories and personal memories. Our room is dark, we turn on our screens: we are all looking for something. “ Rodrigo del Rio and Ignacio Azcueta, curators of the series.

DRCLAS | Harvard Film Archive Partnership
Remapping Latin American Cinema
Long- term initiative led by the Director of the Harvard Film Archive Haden Guest and Film Director, witer, and producer Domingo Sotomayor. A reconsideration of Latin American cinema as a concept that seeks new ways to understand the diverse range of filmmaking practices being defined across the region today. Mapping important transnational ideas and currents at work throughout Latin America, attention is given to the fertile dialogue taking place between documentary and fiction filmmaking, as well as between cinema, literature, and the visual arts. This initiative also looks to the historic past by seeking to understand the deep and continued influence of key films, filmmakers, and movements, especially from the post-1968 period.
Upcoming events related to this initiative will be listed here, starting summer 2021.
