"Digging at the heart of Mother Earth: The social and environmental impact of mega-extractive industries"
The Latin America Solidarity Centre announces its annual Latin America Week.
The 14th Irish Latin American Film Festival - 2013
|Full festival programme click here
The 14th Irish Latin American Film Festival 2013 will take place once again in Belfast and Dublin, featuring shorts and documentaries about this most interesting continent. Latin America was the first to experience the disastrous impact of neoliberal masochism (that we are now experiencing in Ireland with an apathetic attitude) and the first to revolt against it. An example in this Festival is Water Rising and the resistance to privatization of water in Bolivia. It has seen a resounding return for Chávez, Morales and Correa. They have made corporations and the well-off pay their taxes (receipts have almost double in six years) raising public investment to 15% of national income, extending public ownership and re-regulating the banking system to support development!
Admission is free to this bilingual Film Festival, but attendees are requested to be on time for the screenings.
The 14th Irish Latin American Film Festival featuring shorts and documentaries from The Americas, will take place in April. The screenings will start in Belfast on 2/3/4th April in An Droichead [www.androichead.com], followed by Dublin on 5/6/7th April in The Pearse Centre.
More details when they become available.
Deadline for submissions extended to Friday 15th March 2013. Please send LARGE photos.
