HOME IN EXILE

 

The current series of the University of Lincoln’s Spanish and Latin American film season comes to an end next week.

 

This series, which has explored political, geographical and emotional frontiers, aptly concludes with the Chilean film, ‘La Frontera’.

 

‘La Frontera’ is a disturbing tale of internal exile under General Pinochet’s dictatorship.

 

It tells the story of Ramiro, a maths teacher exiled to a remote and desolate village on the country’s frontier for committing a minor act of resistance to the authorities.

 

Ramiro is confronted with feelings of loneliness, loss of identity and physical and emotional isolation until he meets exile Maite.

 

The two form an intense and passionate relationship and ironically Ramiro seems to find some sense of home in exile.

 

The film is in Spanish with English subtitles and will be screened on Monday 26th April at 7pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre at the university’s Brayford Pool campus.

 

Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
