About the Film:
Presented by the Visual Studies Workshop, The Modern Languages and Cultures Department, and the Film and Media Studies Program from the University of Rochester. Supported by Instituto Mexicano de Cinematografía (IMCINE)
The Plot: The mechanisms of memory are mysterious. If you had to choose seven moments that summarized your whole life, which ones would you choose? In “The dance of memory” the director takes us into the deep ocean of her old family videos in order to find the clues that lead us through her quest. This is a documentary essay full of visual poetry, where memory gets scrapped into people and places to reveal the origins of memory.
Followed by panel & Skype discussion w/Gabriela Domínguez Ruvalcaba.
This screening is FREE for students.
