‘RESISTENCIA: Focus on Latin America’
A journey across Latin America today, through revealing documentaries and illuminating discussion.
DAY PASS – £22 / £18 student or concs
SINGLE TICKETS – £7 / £5 student or concs
A panoramic view across Latin America today, from life at the Mexican border, through the Peruvian jungle, and all the way to the streets of Rio.
These outstanding documentaries show the Latin America you don’t see on TV.
No horror stories of drug cartels and gangsters, these award-winning docs and discussions are about the indigenous people of Latin America – from Peru to Brazil to Cuba – those suffering from, and those resisting, the international, corporate exploitation of their land and resources.
