Short films and documentaries

The Irish Latin American Film Festival continues to make available to Irish audiences shorts and documentaries pertaining to the most interesting continent on Pachamama Latin America. Focus on Chile takes place in Birr on Wednesday 8th in The Tin Jug Studio, starting with an arpilleras workshop at 4.00 pm, followed by Chilean Shorts at 6.00 and Chilean documentaries at 8.00
All welcome and free admission.

Chile is the country focus of 2015. We travel all the way back to 1991 for the screening of Scraps of life by Gayla Jamison and fast forward to 2015 for the World premiere of King of Trains by Richard O Connell. (Richard had a short film Las Maravillistas feature in The 12th Irish Latin American Film Festival, 2011).
The Focus on Chile will be introduced by Roberta Bacic in Birr and Derry. Roberta, a Chilean, based in Derry will also lead a workshop in Birr and Derry on arpilleras (the embroidery used by Mothers of the Disappeared during and after the Pinochet dictatorship).
