BETWEEN MEMORIES

Beetwen memories Eudosia is still searching for her husband's remains in the highlands of Ayacucho, Lucero has been in prison for 25 years now for the crime of terrorism against the Peruvian state, and since 2009 the commandos of the counterinsurgency unit Chavin de Huantar recreate and commemorate their heroic military actions to save a nation from the threat of terrorism. Twelve years after the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission published its final report about the atrocities committed during the internal armed conflict (1980-2000), memories of this period seem more contested than ever. This film explores the complex legacies of twenty years of violence and war in Peru through practices of remembering. In three audio-visual pieces made in collaboration with relatives of the disappeared, insurgents of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) and members of the Armed Forces, this documentary aims for creating an on-screen dialogue between memories, which in practice remains elusive.

Martha-Cecilia Dietrich recently completed her PhD in Anthropology with Visual Media at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester and she is currently a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Berne. Her research interests are in the fields of political anthropology, the experience of violence, memory and its diverse articulations.

SEARCHING FOR THE EXIT

Česká republika, 2015, 26 min
Michal Pavlásek
29.01.2016 19:00

Searching for the exit is a personal documentary insight into one of the most debated topics of today – the forced migration of refugees coming to Europe. The Balkan route is the main migratory gateway into Europe. Having spent several summer weeks among the refugees, the filmmaker had the possibility to build close personal relationships with people coming mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan. This recurring pattern of friendship is constantly present in the film thanks to Hussein, a young man from Basra in Iraq who is forced to forget a terrible life tragedy. Hussein’s journey represents a transition between the past and the future, while the filmmaker experiences it as a constant materialization of the uncertainty and dilemmas resulting from his EU citizenship. The passport in his pocket makes him confront his privileged position with the situation of the people he meets during the journey despite the fact that the distance between him and the refugees is often totally erased. The film depicts various encounters and situations from the Balkan route and brings a personal testimony about the border area and state controls, media coverage, volunteer aid, widely spread stereotypes and grey economy. These images and refugee testimonies allow the viewer to experience their journey, get a close up on migration, become a refugee.

Michal Pavlásek is researcher in The Institute of Ethnology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i. Brno. Author is member of Anthropictures - flexible association of social scientists providing independent field research focused on visual and urban anthropology.
