Patricio Guzman’s The Pearl Button at IFC Center

Relevant to the Latin American film course I am teaching at Pratt this semester is the latest documentary from Patricio Guzman. The Pearl Button covers two historically distinct but thematically related atrocities: British colonization in the nineteenth century and the military dictatorship of the late twentieth century.

The film is screening at IFC Center in Greenwich Village from now through November 5, 2015.
