Machuca

One might say that every dictatorship is unique. After all, the reasons that give birth to one are different in each country. However, and as paradoxical as it sounds, most of the time the opposite is also true. Every dictatorship is practically the same as all the others.

No: The Movie is the Message

As a Latin American, I sometimes feel there isn’t a really strong narrative around the politics of the region when it comes to art. In particular, I feel this is most strongly seen in the case of films. With such a rich regional history, It sometimes seems to me that there’s not enough material to watch.
