Second Sunday Culture Films Series
El Olvido (2008)
Director Heddy Honigmann introduces us to the Highland Inca people of Peru, many of whom have relocated to the capital city of Lima. In this highly original film, their stories offer startlingly personal views of recent political history and the effect of emigration on their lives. After the movie, Ann Farnsworth-Alvear, Professor, Penn Latin American and Latino Studies, leads audience members in a discussion about people at the fringes of Peruvian society, exploring what a compassionate view of them can reveal. Watch the trailer below. Cosponsored by Penn Latin American and Latino Studies and Penn Cinema Studies. Free with Museum admission. For more information, call 215.898.2680.
Stay for a fiesta after the program! Guests are invited to enjoy Peruvian cuisine, hear Chicha and Highlands music, and peruse textiles from the collection of the artist Cecilia Pardes.
