Gringo in Mañanaland: SD Indymedia Film Screening and Discussion

sdindymedia

Please come out and join San Diego Indymedia for our monthly event - a film screening and discussion @ the Metate Infoshop on Friday, August 21, 700pm.

We will be showing Gringo in Mañanaland, a film by DeeDee Hallack that explores the strained relations that Latin America has with the United States. Halleck says at the beginning that the images of Latin America she saw in Hollywood films didn't match the reality she knew growing up in Cuba. She then uses footage of old Hollywood films, newsreels and corporate advertising films to show that, even in the early 20th century, these problematic relations between Latin America and the US were well known to Americans, even if they didn't want to recognize them.

The film will be followed by a discussion of the role of media in perpetuating racism. Additionally, there will be SNAX! drinks! STORYTELLING! media-making!
