Memories of a Dictatorship: Working Through Trauma in Chileís Documentary Cinema since 1990 : Public talk with Antonio Traverso Other events...
In this presentation Antonio Traverso will discuss strategies of working through trauma deployed in political memory documentary cinema produced in Chile since 1990, the year that symbolises the end of General Pinochetís dictatorship. Traverso will give this discussion a focus by means of an analysis of documentaries in which Chilean survivors/witnesses return to the traumatic memories and attempt to confront the perpetrators. The presentationís title and material are derived from his in-progress monograph.

Traverso has published essays on political cinema and written and directed short experimental videos. In 2008 he was co-convenor of the Interrogating Trauma: Arts & Media Responses to Collective Suffering international conference, Perth.
