LOS LOBOS - Film Screening and Discussion Festival FILMAR en Latino America

 

The Global Migration and Gender Centres are very happy to take part in the Geneva FILMAR en Latino America Film Festival.
On this occasion, we will be screening the film, Los Lobos winner of the festival’s 2020 public award.

Questions of emigration are at the heart of this film, which tackles the issue through the experience of two children, pulling the spectator into a perspective where imaginary play and harsh reality echo onto each other. Join us and then lean into a discussion about migration, gender, and the Mexico/USA conundrum with Prof. Vincent Chetail, Prof Prügl, Mariana De Jesus Mendez Melendez, LANI (Latin American Network Initiative –IHEID)

Synopsis

Coming from Mexico, Max and Leo have just arrived in the United States with their mother Lucía. Finding their place in a new country is not easy. Waiting for Lucía to come back from work, the two brothers build a fantasy world with their imagination and drawings. They constantly think about the promise of going to Disneyland, the land of their dreams.
