12:15 PM –MEMORY & VIOLENCE
12:15 PM Between Memories, dir. Martha-Cecilia Dietrich (34 mins)
LOCATION: Minneapolis Convention Center, Auditorium 2
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.
